Melody Of The Islands (Larry W. Jones 09/05/2003) (song#2001)

I sit here so delighted
United by the joys of Hawaii and paradise
Let me relate my dream by the sea
For great is my love for my Hawaii

Play me a melody of the islands
A mellow refrain where tradewinds blow
Play me a melody of the islands
Once again when the moon is rising low

Where gentle waves roll upon the golden shore
They seem to say Aloha E Komo Mai once more

Let me smell the fragrance of the tuberose
Play me a melody upon the steel guitars
Play me a melody of the islands in repose
With Aloha E Komo Mai from afar

Where gentle waves roll upon the golden shore
They seem to say Aloha E Komo Mai once more

Let me smell the fragrance of the tuberose
Play me a melody upon the steel guitars
Play me a melody of the islands in repose
With Aloha E Komo Mai from afar



Beautiful Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 09/05/2003) (song#2002)

Why is it that I call you dear
It must be that I’m so sincere
Why is it that you make me glad
Why is it I’m happy and never sad
Why do I feel like I’m in paradise
Even though Aloha ‘oe means goodbye

I guess it must be that you’re the best
After all, you’re different from the rest
I love to gaze into your polynesian eyes
After all, you’re the girl from paradise
The charm you have is all about you
And I know it thrills me through and through
Don’t make me lonely, I want you only, you

Lovely island girl, I love you
For many a day, you’ve been my only one
My heart has only one thing to say
Beautiful island girl, I want you every day
I love your eyes, your smile, your sighs
Beautiful island girl from paradise
Please don’t say Aloha ‘oe, goodbye



Bridge To Paradise (Larry W. Jones 09/06/2003) (song#2003)

Oh, these islands of Aloha
Anchored in the peaceful sea
How often I have wondered why they’re in our dreams
And why our dreams come so easily

Maybe they will always be a mystery
Or maybe a message somewhere within them lies
Maybe they were something meant to be
For dreams are just our bridge to paradise

Oh, these bridges we take to paradise
To islands anchored in the peaceful sea
Oh, I hope they always will arise
These dreams that are surely meant to be

If it’s true that there’s a message there
I wouldn’t be at all surprised
These islands of Aloha are beautiful dreams
Our bridge to paradise

Oh, these islands of Aloha
Paradise is your destiny
Oh, these islands of Hawaii
Dreams of beauty anchored in the peaceful sea

Our dreams are no longer a mystery
A message I have found within them lies
Dreams of islands were something meant to be
For dreams are just our bridge to paradise



My Islands In The Sea (Larry W. Jones 09/06/2003) (song #2004)

Ireland is the emerald isle, Limerick, Cork, Kerry
The Seychelles are jewels in the Indian archipelago
Greece has its islands too, but they’re all Greek to me
So, let me paddle my canoe where pacific breezes blow

Twenty degrees north latitude, I found a whole new attitude
Those Hawaiian islands will always be in my gratitude
And if I’m ever feeling down, just give me old Lahaina town
Where Aloha will always be somewhere around

Aloha, my Hawaii, my islands in the sea
Aloha E Komo Mai, welcome and come to me
Fill my days with romance where dreams are coming true
Soon I’ll return, for I’ve been missing you

Twenty degrees north latitude, I found a whole new attitude
Those Hawaiian islands will always be in my gratitude
And if I’m ever feeling down, just give me old Lahaina town
Where Aloha will always be somewhere around

Aloha, my Hawaii, my islands in the sea
Aloha E Komo Mai, welcome and come to me
Fill my days with romance where dreams are coming true
Soon I’ll return, for I’ve been missing you



Islands Of Such Beauty (Larry W. Jones 09/06/2003) (song#2005)

Islands of such beauty
Caressed by peaceful oceans
Islands of such beauty
Dressed with Aloha love’s emotions
Your breezes softly blowing
Fronds of palm trees gently flowing
Golden is your island sand
True love is always in demand
Islands of such beauty
Anchored there for you and me

So lovely is Hawaii, arranged seductively
So lovely are your charms eternally

Islands of such beauty
None like Hawaii will you find
They always fulfill their duty
Islands created with love in mind
A gift from up above
Grown from down below
From peaceful waters worthy of
True love where breezes blow

So lovely is Hawaii, arranged seductively
So lovely are your charms eternally
Islands of such beauty
Anchored there for you and me



Island Maiden’s Lament (Larry W. Jones 09/07/2003) (song#2006)

Once there was a pretty island maiden
A sweet little Hawaiian island maid
She sang a lover’s song as she strolled along
For the love in her heart was oh, so strong

She loved an island warrior boy
This pretty island maid was full of joy
But then one day he went away to war
And on the island, she didn’t see him anymore

Now, the stars come out at night to see sweet Leilani
The tropic wind is blowing, only the breeze is knowing
For on an island far away, her lover sleeps today
And in sorrow, sweet Leilani weeps beside the bay

She waited for him night and day
For his canoe coming through the spray
And when the tide was high, she would steal away
To make for him another welcome flower lei

But when all the war canoes arrived
She knew her island warrior boy had not survived
For on a distant isle, a war so cruel and vile
Had claimed his life, her dream, and now her smile

Now, the stars come out at night to see sweet Leilani
The tropic wind is blowing, only the breeze is knowing
For on an island far away, her lover sleeps today
And in sorrow, sweet Leilani weeps beside the bay



Bamboo Door Cottage (Larry W. Jones 09/07/2003) (song#2007)

Where the tradewind is blowing on its golden sandy shore
And the Lurline steams in upon the flooding tide
There’s a little grass roofed cottage with a bamboo door
And a garden growing island flowers at the side

Oh, I steamed away aboard the Lurline to other places green
For dreams I knew would be waiting there for me
Money would grow on trees and I would be so happy
Until I realized that I was lost from paradise

I must return, yes, I must return to that golden sandy shore
To ohana island love from folks whose words have never lied
And to that little grass roofed cottage with a bamboo door
And a garden growing island flowers at the side

I can see the breakers crashing on the reef outside the bay
And I know that little cottage is waiting there for me
I won’t be strolling, I’ll be running when I get home today
To that little grass roofed cottage with a bamboo door by the sea

Oh, I steamed away aboard the Lurline to other places green
For dreams I knew would be waiting there for me
Money would grow on trees and I would be so happy
Until I realized that I was lost from paradise

I can see the breakers crashing on the reef outside the bay
And I know that little cottage is waiting there for me
I won’t be strolling, I’ll be running when I get home today
To that little grass roofed cottage with a bamboo door by the sea



Let The Tradewinds Flow (Larry W. Jones 09/07/2003) (song#2008)

There’s an island in the deep blue sea
Livin’ on the mainland just is not the place for me
An island’s pace for lovin’ seems just right, you see
So, let the island mana fill you deep inside
Especially if you wanna have love you cannot hide
Just bring your sweet Moana to stroll there by your side

Just make your dreams come true in Hawaii blue
Don’t go to extremes, there’s plenty to see
Just let the tradewinds flow through your mind endlessly
And then you’ll know that love is in the wind
Just let the trpoic zone be your new love’s home
And make your dreams all come true in Hawaii blue

That’s where you’ll find those warm tropic nights
And that’s where your mind will be filled with delights
There must be a reason why things grow all year long
It must be the islands that just make love a song
So, just let the oceans fill up your emotions
And you’ll know why island love is so strong

Just make your dreams come true in Hawaii blue
Don’t go to extremes, there’s plenty to see
Just let the tradewinds flow through your mind endlessly
And then you’ll know that love is in the wind
Just let the trpoic zone be your new love’s home
And make your dreams all come true in Hawaii blue

Just let the tradewinds flow through your mind endlessly
And then you’ll know that love is in the wind
Just let the trpoic zone be your new love’s home
And make your dreams all come true in Hawaii blue



Here On My Island (Larry W. Jones 09/07/2003) (song#2009)

Moonlight was bright, dear, moonbeams were peeping
I dreamed you came back with the tide
But when daylight broke, dear, my eyes were weeping
For you were still gone from my side

Here on my island, my peaceful island
You made me happy where breezes play
Where tradewinds blow, dear, I still love you
Bring back your love to me again, I pray

You’ll always be here in my heart, dear
Even though the island’s not the same
I know you left me for another
But in my heart you’re still my flame

Here on my island, my peaceful island
You made me happy where breezes play
Where tradewinds blow, dear, I still love you
Bring back your love to me again, I pray

You’re in my dreams, dear, though they grieve me
My dreams aren’t what they seem
I know you left me for another
Another island love has come between

Here on my island, my peaceful island
You made me happy where breezes play
Where tradewinds blow, dear, I still love you
Bring back your love to me again, I pray



Island State Of Mind (Larry W. Jones 09/07/2003) (song#2010)

At first sight, seemed like I knew her
And she said she felt the same sweet line
Then she told me most of her dreams were
Of warm tropic islands the same as mine

And she spoke of sand she’s strolled on
And tropic mountains she had climbed
From that time on, to songs I was drawn
About love and an island state of mind

When the full moon is on the sea waves
And the moonbeams fill the earth
Soon the feelings that island dreams gave
Brings a sweet love to gentle birth

There’s no doubt in what I believe in
That her heart’s in tune with mine
We hear violins in the tradewinds
About love and an island state of mind

As the days pass, time comes at last
For Maui chimes to softly ring
We will marry, for love won’t tarry
Island love is the sweetest thing

And we speak of sands we will stroll on
Hand in hand for all of time
For our new song is a sarong
About love and an island state of mind



Around You (Larry W. Jones 09/08/2003) (song#2011)

All I want to be around is, around you
And when you’re not by my side I, sound blue
This small island that we share is where love, abounds too
So, here where love in the tradewinds blow
All I know is I want to be, around you

And all my fondest dreams have themes, around you
The answer to all my prayers are found, in you
Stroll with me here by the sea, where moonlight glows
And you’ll see what my heart already knows
All I know is I want to be, around you

Look up in the sky with me
Our love can fly that high, you see
I’ll never make you cry or plead
Our love will be an island song as soft
As the breeze that flows along aloft
For all I know is around you is all I need

All the things that make paradise is, around you
The sun sets in old Lahaina town, around you
I’ve already made up my mind, about you
And I think you already know who’s behind it too
All I know is I want to be, around you

Look up in the sky with me
Our love can fly that high, you see
I’ll never make you cry or plead
Our love will be an island song as soft
As the breeze that flows along aloft
For all I know is around you is all I need

All the things that make paradise is, around you
The sun sets in old Lahaina town, around you
I’ve already made up my mind, about you
And I think you already know who’s behind it too
All I know is I want to be, around you



My True Love And Me (Larry W. Jones 09/08/2003) (song#2012)

Before we go for another stroll
Here where the tradewinds blow
I must tell to you what’s in my soul
For it’s something that you must know
It’s about the years ahead of you
Here where the island roses freely grow
I can’t build you castles by the sea
All I have to give is my true love and me

There’ll be a little cottage by the shore
And not much more
You’ll face reality where dreams have been
And grace a luau now and then
But all I own in this tropic zone is free
All I have to give is my true love and me

I pledge my love to you here in this island sand
And I’ll give all my love every way I can
But please be sure that you agree
That all the gold you need
Is right here in this wedding band
I pray this meets with all your plans
I can’t build you castles by the sea
All I have to give is my true love and me

There’ll be a little cottage by the shore
And not much more
You’ll face reality where dreams have been
And grace a luau now and then
But all I own in this tropic zone is free
All I have to give is my true love and me

I pledge my love to you here in this island sand
And I’ll give all my love every way I can
But please be sure that you agree
That all the gold you need
Is right here in this wedding band
I pray this meets with all your plans
I can’t build you castles by the sea
All I have to give is my true love and me



Hono Town Blues (Larry W. Jones 09/08/2003) (song#2013)

Sailed into Hono town where breezes blow
Seen some pretty wahinis with island men
I don’t mind ’em the way I find ’em
Just can’t get one to be my friend
Thought this was the paradise state I’m in

Here’s another moonlit night, but where’s everybody
Guess it doesn’t matter ’cause the captain said, sonny
I’m witholdin’ all the money for your pay
Now I don’t think it’s very funny
But I’ll never meet that pretty island maid

An island braddah told me
His sistah was five foot nine
But instead of bein’ love’s potion
She had this strange notion
That love was lots of fish and poi and luau swine

Here’s another moonlit night, but where’s everybody
Guess it doesn’t matter ’cause the captain said, sonny
I’m witholdin’ all the money for your pay
Now I don’t think it’s very funny
But I’ll never meet that pretty island maid

Well, it’s hard on a sailor
When the tropic sun is goin’ down
Cause the captain kept my money
And I can’t find no island honey
Guess I’ll just sail away from old Hono town

Well, it’s hard on a sailor
When the tropic sun is goin’ down
Cause the captain kept my money
And I can’t find no island honey
Guess I’ll just sail away from old Hono town



Like I dream Of You (Larry W. Jones 09/08/2003) (song#2014)

Are you dreaming of me
Like I dream of you
Do you dream of all the things
We used to do
Like strolling hand in hand
On the sand at Waikiki
Are you dreaming of me
Like I dream of you

On the island we were so happy
But we’ve lost that dream we knew
Is there a chance our romance could start over
And enhance a faded dream or two
Are you dreaming of me
Like I dream of you

Can you still feel my love
I wish I knew
Cause if you’re no longer in love with me
And with my love that’s true
Then you’re not dreaming of me
No, you’re not dreaming of me
Like I dream of you
Like I dream of you

On the island we were so happy
But we’ve lost that dream we knew
Is there a chance our romance could start over
And enhance a faded dream or two
Are you dreaming of me
Like I dream of you

Are you dreaming of me
Like I dream of you



Aloha ‘oe And Goodbye (Larry W. Jones 09/08/2003) (song#2015)

I’m sorry, is all I can say
Years still bring the tears which come easily
I’m sorry, I’m sorry
Forgive me, is all that I can say
Years still bring the tears which come easily
Forgive me, is all that I can say

But here’s what I wish you could say
Come stroll with me tonight down by the bay
Maybe if I could find the right words to say
Then our island love might live another day

Aloha E Komo Mai, are words your lips don’t say
Aloha ‘oe and goodbye, I still hear today
I’m sorry, I’m sorry
Forgive me, is all that I can say
Years still bring the tears which come easily
Forgive me, is all that I can say

But here’s what I wish you could say
Come stroll with me tonight down by the bay
Maybe if I could find the right words to say
Then our island love might live another day

But here’s what I wish you could say
Come stroll with me tonight down by the bay
Maybe if I could find the right words to say
Then our island love might live another day



My Waipi’o Valley Love (Larry W. Jones 09/09/2003) (song#2016)

Over the Kohala mountains, in the valley of Waipi’o
An island girl is waiting there for me
Between the falls of Hakalaoa and Hi’ilawe
An island girl is waiting there for me

I feel her in my heart, in its every part
She knows that she’s my only island love
I’m going to that Hamakua coast
To see the girl that I love most
She knows that she’s my Waipi’o Valley love

I’ve walked the length of Waipi’o Valley
And the other six on the windward side
We’ve strolled together on the black sand alley
And on the big island she’ll be my bride

We’ve stepped the stones across the valley streams
And sang love songs by the Wailoa river
The sun has shone there upon our dreams
And the golden moon lights the sea of silver

I feel her in my heart, in its every part
She knows that she’s my only island love
I’m going to that Hamakua coast
To see the girl that I love most
She knows that she’s my Waipi’o Valley love

She knows that she’s my Waipi’o Valley love



It’s So Nice (Larry W. Jones 09/09/2003) (song#2017)

It’s so nice to stroll along with you
Although you seem to disappear before too long
It’s nice to have you on the isle
Makes me smile when things go wrong
When you’re near I set aside my fears
And for awhile life is just an island song

It’s so nice to dream of what might be
The theme is always love for you and me
Before I awake I hold you in my arms
Then my heart breaks in two with sad alarm

I’ll light the tiki torch every night
And hope you’ll see its shining light
To guide you here when dreams take flight
It’s so nice to dream of what might be

It’s nice to have you on the isle
Makes me smile when things go wrong
When you’re near I set aside my fears
And for awhile life is just an island song

It’s so nice to dream of what might be
The theme is always love for you and me
Before I awake I hold you in my arms
Then my heart breaks in two with sad alarm

I’ll light the tiki torch every night
And hope you’ll see its shining light
To guide you here when dreams take flight
It’s so nice to dream of what might be



Islands Of Aloha (Larry W. Jones 09/09/2003) (song#2018)

Twenty degrees north latitude
Sea level altitude
Islands are not all the same
Blessed by happy beatitudes
Ohana love is always imbued
Islands of Aloha is their name

Last year I remember so clear
For a month toward islands I steered
Found all the old places, met some new faces
The islands of Aloha I cheered

Twenty degrees north latitude
Sea level altitude
Islands are not all the same
Blessed by happy beatitudes
Ohana love is always imbued
Islands of Aloha is their name

This year I’m dreaming again
About all the islands where I’ve been
Hawaii is to me a dear friend
For attitudes there I comprehend

Twenty degrees north latitude
Sea level altitude
Islands are not all the same
Blessed by happy beatitudes
Ohana love is always imbued
Islands of Aloha is their name



Like Heaven In My Mind (Larry W. Jones 09/09/2003) (song#2019)

As I cruise around the isle, each and every mile
Watching the breakers curl, I think of my island girl
And what we’ll do when the day is through
Girl, I’m so in love with you

You’re like heaven in my mind
Moon and stars and love all combined
Thinking of you helps me to unwind
Girl, I’m so in love with you
Yes, I’m so in love with you

We’ve seen the good times and the bad
But for true love, there’s nothing more to add
The only times I think about are glad
Cause you’ve made all my dreams come true

You’re like heaven in my mind
Moon and stars and love all combined
Thinking of you helps me to unwind
Girl, I’m so in love with you
Yes, I’m so in love with you

You’re like heaven in my mind
Moon and stars and love all combined
Thinking of you helps me to unwind
Girl, I’m so in love with you
Yes, I’m so in love with you

We’ve seen the good times and the bad
But for true love, there’s nothing more to add
The only times I think about are glad
Cause you’ve made all my dreams come true



Kiho’alu Fade (Larry W. Jones 09/09/2003) (song#2020)

As the days go by, I feel confused
I read her reply but I’m not bemused
There’s a rainbow shining through the pouring rain
But she got the pot of gold, ain’t that a shame

Well, play those strings, boys, all night through
I wanna disappear in kiho’alu and fade away
Slack key brings joy when you’re feelin’ blue
I wanna disappear in kiho’alu and fade away

I’m almost down to my very last dime
I read her reply for the very last time
There’s a silver line behind the cloudy sky
But she’s no longer mine here in paradise

Well, play those strings, boys, all night through
I wanna disappear in kiho’alu and fade away
Slack key brings joy when you’re feelin’ blue
I wanna disappear in kiho’alu and fade away

When I hear that smooth kiho’alu
That island guitar music coming through
It’s the only thing that’s soothing me
Lets my mind be free

I wanna thank you island boys for stickin’ by me
Your music soothes my soul as I go along
Keep playin’ that kiho’alu island melody
One of these days I’ll be comin’ back strong

Well, play those strings, boys, all night through
I wanna disappear in kiho’alu and fade away
Slack key brings joy when you’re feelin’ blue
I wanna disappear in kiho’alu and fade away



Aloha Tower Goodbye (Larry W. Jones 09/09/2003) (song#2021)

 

Pretty leis, red, yellow, white, blue and gold
Given with the same love
As from years past untold

Here I stand, at the Aloha tower quay
The Lurline is ready to get underway
Island sand won’t feel your footprints for awhile
But our love is real, so we put on a smile

Sailing, with the tidal flow, you’re going
There’s a soft breeze gently blowing
Soon the moon will find you far at sea
Sailing, soon my heart will be calling
And there will be teardrops falling
Until you come sailing home to me

Pretty polynesian eyes, misty eyes
I will miss you here in paradise
This pretty lei is for bittersweet goodbyes

Linger here awhile, just a little while
I will miss your lovely smile, your island style
You’re so beguiling to me

Sailing, with the tidal flow, you’re going
There’s a soft breeze gently blowing
Soon the moon will find you far at sea
Sailing, soon my heart will be calling
And there will be teardrops falling
Until you come sailing home to me

Sailing, soon my heart will be calling
And there will be teardrops falling
Until you come sailing home to me



On A Golden Shore (Larry W. Jones 09/30/2003) (song#2022)

 

You strolled into my dreams again
Just like a page from storyland
You strolled into my dreams again
On a golden shore holding hands

I dreamed of something made of gold
It was as warm as the tropic sun
In my dreams I had your arms to hold
On a golden shore where your love I won

The gentle waves of the ocean soothes my restless mind
Your gentle ways builds emotion of the blessed kind

I dreamed of summer days filled with fun
And nights dancing to island guitar bands
I dreamed of island love that had begun
On a golden shore holding hands

The gentle waves of the ocean soothes my restless mind
Your gentle ways builds emotion of the blessed kind

I dreamed of summer days filled with fun
And nights dancing to island guitar bands
I dreamed of island love that had begun
On a golden shore holding hands

I dreamed of something made of gold
It was as warm as the tropic sun
In my dreams I had your arms to hold
On a golden shore where your love I won
On a golden shore where your love I won



Distant Love (Larry W. Jones 09/30/2003) (song#2023)

 

I saw myself in your picture in love with you
In my dreams I sail the seas in search of you
Every night it’s not a dream that I’m missing you
Why must this distant love break my heart in two

Cause I saw myself in your picture in love with you
It seemed like the perfect mixture of love so true
You’re the only island girl I’m dreaming of
My heart is broken by this distant love

Guess I’m looking for a miracle, not just romance
Life is so satirical and love comes just by chance
Our lives could be a lyrical song of the dove
My heart is broken by this distant love

I know I was wrong and I feel your pain
You’re still my island song in the pouring rain
I swear my love to you by the stars above
My heart is broken by this distant love

Cause I saw myself in your picture in love with you
It seemed like the perfect mixture of love so true
You’re the only island girl I’m dreaming of
My heart is broken by this distant love

Guess I’m looking for a miracle, not just romance
Life is so satirical and love comes just by chance
Our lives could be a lyrical song of the dove
My heart is broken by this distant love
My heart is broken by this distant love



Woe Is Me (Larry W. Jones 09/30/2003) (song#2024)

 

Island streams are flowing to the sea
All my dreams wish you were here with me
Gentle waves are kissing the golden shore
And I’m a slave to missing you some more

Woe is me, woe is me
Tradewinds blow her love to me
Woe is me, woe is me
Bring my love back to Hawaii

The moon is shining on the sea
Beams of gold glancing off the waves
A tune is whining through palm trees
Dreams of old romancing the island gave

Woe is me, woe is me
Tradewinds blow her love to me
Woe is me, woe is me
Bring my love back to Hawaii

Stars are out in the velvet sky
I wish upon each one to be by your side
But I’m about to weep and cry
Woe is me, Aloha ‘oe meant goodbye

Island streams are flowing to the sea
All my dreams wish you were here with me
Gentle waves are kissing the golden shore
And I’a a slave to missing you some more

Woe is me, woe is me
Tradewinds blow her love to me
Woe is me, woe is me
Bring my love back to Hawaii



Sometimes The Time (Larry W. Jones 09/30/2003) (song#2025)

Sometimes the time just never ends
I don’t know why
Those Maui chimes and dreams still blend
With the tears from my eyes

Why did Aloha have to mean goodbye
I always thought it just meant hello
Sometimes the time comes for me to cry
Every time I feel the tradewinds blow

Well I know now that time never stays the same
Just like the love we had before
Where tradewinds blow it’s a whole new game
Since I lost your love on that sunny shore

Sometimes the time seems to go no more
And I know the reason why
Aloha never did mean goodbye before
But now it’s the season for me to cry

Sometimes the time comes for love to end
I don’t know why
Those Maui chimes and dreams still blend
With the tears from my eyes

Why did Aloha have to mean goodbye
I always thought it just meant hello
Sometimes the time comes for me to cry
Every time I feel the tradewinds blow

Why did Aloha have to mean goodbye
I always thought it just meant hello
Sometimes the time comes for me to cry
Every time I feel the tradewinds blow



Rest Of My Life (Larry W. Jones 09/30/2003) (song#2026)

 

Here’s what I’ll be doing for the rest of my life
I’ll be with you to watch the stars shine above
Cause my promise to you is for the rest of my life
To be here by your side doing the best for your love

Here’s what I’ll be doing for the rest of my life
I don’t believe in destiny but I can still see
That I’ll be your man and you’ll be my wife
And we’ll be doing the things as love meant to be

Forever is just more of what makes my heart now sing
And I want you to be sure of just one thing

Here’s what I’ll be doing for the rest of my life
It’s easy to see from up here on cloud nine
That you’ll have my love for the rest of your life
And your heart will beat in time with mine

Here’s what I’ll be doing for the rest of my life
I’ll be with you to watch the stars shine above
Cause my promise to you is for the rest of my life
To be here by your side doing the best for your love

Forever is just more of what makes my heart now sing
And I want you to be sure of just one thing

Here’s what I’ll be doing for the rest of my life
It’s easy to see from up here on cloud nine
That you’ll have my love for the rest of your life
And your heart will beat in time with mine



Stroll With Me (Larry W. Jones 10/01/2003) (song#2027)

When the day has come, and the island is bright
And the tropic sun shines in majesty
Rainbows will shine when you’re in sight
As long as you stroll hand in hand with me

So darlin’, darlin’ stroll with me, stroll with me
Won’t you stroll, stroll hand in hand with me

And when the day has gone, and the moon shines on the sea
I won’t be all alone cause you’ll be here with me
Tradewinds will sigh, and so will I
As long as you stroll hand in hand with me

So darlin’, darlin’ stroll with me, stroll with me
Won’t you stroll, stroll hand in hand with me

And when the day has gone, and the moon shines on the sea
I won’t be all alone cause you’ll be here with me
Tradewinds will sigh, and so will I
As long as you stroll hand in hand with me

So darlin’, darlin’ stroll with me, stroll with me
Won’t you stroll, stroll hand in hand with me



By The Oceanside (Larry W. Jones 10/01/2003) (song#2028)

I reside by the oceanside
The days are warm and the mood is too
Tradewinds blow, people are kind
And love is what flows in Hawaii blue

Island time, time for getting out
Feeling fine is what it’s all about
People laughing from the inside out
That’s why I reside by the oceanside

Here’s what you need to do if you’re feeling blue
Get out to where your troubles you can push aside
Bring the one you love and let your dreams come true
Love and dreams are found here by the oceanside

Island time, time for getting out
Feeling fine is what it’s all about
People laughing from the inside out
That’s why I reside by the oceanside

Here’s what you need to do if you’re feeling blue
Get out to where your troubles you can push aside
Bring the one you love and let your dreams come true
Love and dreams are found here by the oceanside

I reside by the oceanside
The days are warm and the mood is too
Tradewinds blow, people are kind
And love is what flows in Hawaii blue



Hawaiian Opihi Man (Larry W. Jones 10/01/2003) (song#2029)

 

Opihi man is a dying breed
Coral rocks will make him bleed
Crashing waves he must ever heed
No one to save Hawaiian opihi man

He works alone at the ebbing tide
Opihi bag hanging at his side
Prying limpets that the seas provide
No one to save Hawaiian opihi man

Hawaiian opihi man, gather opihi when you can
No use to wonder how it all began
Opihi is on the table of Hawaiian opihi man
Opihi is on the table of Hawaiian opihi man

Opihi man battles the waves and foam
Just to bring his bag of opihi home
Watch out for the wave that will soon strike home
No one to save Hawaiian opihi man

He works alone at the ebbing tide
Opihi bag hanging at his side
Prying limpets that the seas provide
No one to save Hawaiian opihi man

Hawaiian opihi man, gather opihi when you can
No use to wonder how it all began
Opihi is on the table of Hawaiian opihi man
Opihi is on the table of Hawaiian opihi man

Opihi man battles the waves and foam
Just to bring his bag of opihi home
Watch out for the wave that will soon strike home
No one to save Hawaiian opihi man



Ku’u Road O Makaha (Larry W. Jones 10/01/2003) (song#2030)

 

I think of days when I was younger
Bagging opihi from the reef
In west Makaha, I never hungered
And never knew of things to cause me grief

I still dream of my returning
Each time your road calls out to me
But I’m afraid that all my yearning
Will find you’re not the same you used to be
Me ke aloha ku`u road `o Makaha

I still think of days when I was well advised
Before I let all my dreams be compromised
Makua kane said the road to home would still be there
Just remember Makaha son, when life fails to treat you fair

I still dream of my returning to your sea
Each time your road calls out to me
But I’m afraid your road that’s calling
Will find that I must come back crawling
Me ke aloha ku`u road `o Makaha

Life itself is such a teacher, not to be denied
Different from the dreams with features it can’t hide
I’ve learned to live it slowly as on life’s road I go
Remembering Makaha and the road where tradewinds blow

I think of days when I was younger
As on my slack key guitar I strummed along
For west Makaha I have this hunger
To walk that road with an island song

Last night I dreamed I heard you calling
For I know your road called out to me
That you would welcome me when crawling
Back to my home there by the sea
Me ke aloha ku`u road `o Makaha
Me ke aloha ku`u road `o Makaha



Beautiful Isle (Larry W. Jones 10/01/2003) (song#2031)

 

There’s a beautiful isle, in far away seas
No mansions with tile, just bliss for you and me
Oh, that beautiful isle, with flowers so fair
Is waiting with style, for you and me there

There’s a beautiful isle, in far away seas
There’s a beautiful isle, for you and for me
And it’s ohana power, the sun can’t outshine
And that beautiful isle, someday will be mine

On that beautiful isle, a lei you will wear
And you’ll wear a smile, for love’s in the air
And the joys of that isle, you and I will know
We’ll do it in style, where soft tradewinds blow

There’s a beautiful isle, in far away seas
There’s a beautiful isle, for you and for me
And it’s ohana power, the sun can’t outshine
And that beautiful isle, someday will be mine



Hula Maid In Hawaii Blue (Larry W. Jones 10/01/2003) (song#2032)

 

All the world loves a love story
And many a one has been penned
So, here is my inventory
Of one before it began, it would end

A hula maid in Hawaii blue
Met me by chance as lovers do
In night time shadows we kissed
Then herself she dismissed
And our island romance was through

A hula maid in Hawaii blue
Thought I was a lover she knew
When her lips met mine, it was divine
But mine weren’t the lips she pursued

How do I know this is a love story
There was no moon or starlit glory
But how else could I know love so divine
When my heart still wants her to be mine

A hula maid in Hawaii blue
A chance romance so strange but true
A lifetime I’ve spent in that one moment
With a hula maid in Hawaii blue



Manoa Island Morning (Larry W. Jones 10/01/2003) (song#2033)

 

It’s a lovely Manoa island morning
The tropic sun said come out for awhile
Can’t help but put on a smile
Just breath in some more fresh air, cause
It’s just part of livin’ island style
When the weather’s fine, like here all the time
Take the chance to go out and play
It’s just part of livin’ the island way

It’s a lovely Manoa island morning
Birds of paradise are singin’ their song
Guess I’ll be on my way around
Hangin’ loose in old Lahaina town
Nothing gonna keep me down
Gonna cover me some happy ground
It’s just not the thing to hide when you can sing
So, bring your smile and come along

It’s a lovely Manoa island morning
There will be ladies selling
Fragrant leis made for smelling
Tradewinds will be caressing
Your hair like giving a blessing

It’s a lovely Manoa island morning
Every day the islands say
Gotta get away, watch a hula sway
A lovely Manoa island morning says it’s OK
What a lovely Manoa island morning day



My Ocean Island Love (Larry W. Jones 10/01/2003) (song#2034)

 

An ocean without an island
Is an emotion without a love
Is a hand without a glove
My ocean island love

An ocean without an island
Is a moon without a croon
Is a June without a tune
My ocean island love

Ever since I found your island
I knew an ocean of love I’d find
Cause you filled my emotions
With a girl who’s really mine

An ocean with your island
Has a moon under which to croon
Has a June with a wedding tune
My ocean island love

My ocean island love, my ocean island love

Ever since I found your island
I knew an ocean of love I’d find
Cause you filled my emotions
With a girl who’s really mine

An ocean with your island
Has a moon under which to croon
Has a June with a wedding tune
My ocean island love



Hula With Fish And Poi (Larry W. Jones 10/02/2003) (song#2035)

 

Hawaiian man, won’t you marry me
The girl from the mainland said
Thank you ever so kindly, mam
But I’d rather wish that I was dead

Here by the ocean where the breakers curl
I’ll stay on the island and keep my joy
Cause at the Friday night luau an island girl
Will serve up hula with fish and poi

Hawaiian man, won’t you marry me
I’ll be your lovey dovey
Thank you ever so kindly, mam
But there’s somebody far above ye

Hawaiian man, the month is June
And I’ve got my vows rehearsed
Thank you ever so kindly, mam
I’ll marry you June the thirty first

Hawaiian man, you’re way of life is slow
And I’m starting to have my doubts
Thank you ever so kindly, mam
That’s what the islands are all about

Here by the ocean where the breakers curl
I’ll stay on the island and keep my joy
Cause at the Friday night luau an island girl
Will serve up hula with fish and poi
Serve up hula with fish and poi



A Hula Girl Like You (Larry W. Jones 10/02/2003) (song#2036)

Well there’s a combo on the isle
Playing sweet music to make you smile
And they’re singing a song
About a hula girl like you

But each selection that they’re making
Lets me know my heart will be breaking
When I fall in love
In love with a hula girl like you

Well, it’s just an old juke box
But even if I play some mainland rhythm that rocks
The music would still turn my dreams blue
So, I’ll spend my last mainland dime
And play that island song one more time
Cause I wanna fall in love
In love with a hula girl like you

I guess I’ll catch that flight back home
Even though I’ll forever be alone
Cause now I can only dream about
Being in love with a hula girl like you
Yeah, I’ll only dream about
About being in love
In love with a hula girl like you



Dear Jane (Larry W. Jones 10/02/2003) (song#2037)

 

Dear Jane, I wish I knew just what to write
Dear Jane, I got your letter the other night
That your love for me has died away like grass upon the plain
And tonight you wed another, dear Jane

I was in Honolulu when the Lurline steamed into town
The captain handed me a letter from our home town
I was happy as could be, since your love I’d won
Then I opened up the letter and it started, Dear John

Dear Jane, I wish I knew just what to write
Dear Jane, I got your letter the other night
That your love for me has died away like grass upon the plain
And tonight you wed another, dear Jane

Yes, I’ll send back your picture, your husband wants it now
Since you told me who you’re wedding, I don’t care, dear, anyhow
I guess the ceremony is over and you married my brother Wayne
And I wish you happiness forever, dear Jane

Dear Jane, I wish I knew just what to write
Dear Jane, I got your letter the other night
That your love for me has died away like grass upon the plain
And tonight you wed another, dear Jane



Leilani And Lyle (Larry W. Jones 10/02/2003) (song#2038)

 

The world looks optimistic over on lovers isle
For a girl named Leilani and a boy named Lyle

Come on and get a little closer
Don’t let me hear you say no sir
Sings the bird of paradise with style
To a girl named Leilani and a boy named Lyle

Where there’s an isle full of moonlight
And Leilani with her charms
There ought to be a Lyle tonight
Wrapped up in her arms

So, when I kiss you, I want to see you smile
After all, dreams come true in Hawaii blue
For you’re my Leilani, and I’m your Lyle
And I want you to know that I’m in love with you

Where there’s an isle full of moonlight
And Leilani with her charms
There ought to be a Lyle tonight
Wrapped up in her arms

For you’re my Leilani, and I’m your Lyle
And I want you to know that I’m in love with you



An Island Kinda Love (Larry W. Jones 10/02/2003) (song#2039)

If I’m feeling down, in old Lahaina town
It helps if you’re around, then I don’t wear a frown
When you’re strolling by me, love is right beside me
I can hear the tradewinds whisper in my ear
Right here by the sea, darling you and me
Got an island kinda love

When we’re at the luau, you can teach me just how
To do the hula too now, when the islands call
When I see your hips, as they’re gently swaying
I know just what they’re saying
Right here by the sea, darling you and me
Got an island kinda love, oh

If I’m feeling down, in old Lahaina town
It helps if you’re around, then I don’t wear a frown
When you wear my lei, really makes my day
Love is here to stay, it’s in the air
Right here by the sea, darling you and me
Got an island kinda love
Got an island kinda love, oh
Got an island kinda love



Ke Aloha I Ka Kaho’olawe (Larry W. Jones 10/02/2003) (song#2040)

Ke Aloha I Ka Kaho’olawe
When I see Kaho’olawe, isle of the Pacific ocean
Oh, island of Hawaii, surrounded by emotion
It was by you the long canoes passed to Tahiti
Ke Aloha I Ka Kaho’olawe, it is you I love

Red summit plains of Moa’ula
Ancient place for dances of the hula
Ka palupalu o Kanaloa, the gentleness of Kanaloa
Island of the sea, dear you are to me
Ke Aloha I Ka Kaho’olawe, it is you I love

White flower of Puakala
Gentle bays of Hakioawa
The ridge of Pu’u Moa’ulaiki, sands of Keanakeiki
Isle of history, it is no mystery
Ke Aloha I Ka Kaho’olawe, it is you I love

Ke Aloha I Ka Kaho’olawe
When I see Kaho’olawe, isle of the Pacific ocean
Oh, island of Hawaii, surrounded by emotion
Little isle of glory, island of talk story
Ke Aloha I Ka Kaho’olawe, it is you I love



Bobby Pfeiffer (Larry W. Jones 10/02/2003) (song#2041)

Bobby Pfeiffer was a businessman
From Suva, Fiji way he came
But over all he was a sailor man
Honolulu harbor was his game

Bobby Pfeiffer was an island man
Fiji, Hawaii and Oahu too
His feet were grown in island sand
He was loved in Hawaii blue

Bobby Pfeiffer was the captain number nine
Eight generations of captains was his line
Working harbor tugs and cattle ships in between
He chased loose cows down River Street
From the old dock at pier nineteen

Bobby Pfeiffer was a music man
Danced the hula with the best
At company parties he had lots of fans
And in Aloha shirts he dressed

Bobby Pfeiffer was a pioneer
Container shipping saved lots of dimes
Bobby Pfeiffer is still revered
By the folks of the Matson Line

Bobby Pfeiffer will be remembered
As a generous man by all
The Hawaii Maritime Center
Is there because he made the call

Bobby Pfeiffer lived to be eighty three
Now we must leave him there behind
But here’s to one thing we’ll all agree
Bobby Pfeiffer was one of a kind

Ha`ina mai ka puana la
Let the refrain be told
Of Bobby Pfeiffer, island man
Of Bobby Pfeiffer, one of a kind



Like A Flower Lei (Larry W. Jones 10/03/2003) (song#2042)

It’s just a little island place
But it has an old time grace
I would give up this old rat race
To be back in old Lahaina town

To some it’s just a place that’s old
The harbor is a little run down
But that’s where talk stories are told
And it happens to be my home town

If I be rich or I be poor
There’s one thing I know for sure
Ohana love is there to stay
Old Lahaina town is like a flower lei

It’s just a little island place
But it has an old time grace
I would give up this old rat race
To be back in old Lahaina town

If I be rich or I be poor
There’s one thing I know for sure
Ohana love is there to stay
Old Lahaina town is like a flower lei



A New Kind Of World (Larry W. Jones 10/03/2003) (song#2043)

Here’s why the sun keeps on shining
Here’s why the waves rush to shore
They know it’s a new kind of world
Since you said you’ll love me ever more

Here’s why the birds go on singing
Here’s why the moon shines above
They know it’s a new kind of world
Since you said you’ll give me all your love

I wake up in the morning to the wonder
That life is not the same as it was
Your love is so grand, now I understand
How life goes on the way it does

You’re the reason my heart goes on beating
You’re the reason my eyes see the light
They know it’s a new kind of world
You’re my island love in paradise

You’re the reason my heart goes on beating
You’re the reason my eyes see the light
They know it’s a new kind of world
You’re my island love in paradise



Love Is Not A Question (Larry W. Jones 10/03/2003) (song#2044)

I know she loves me, with all her heart
I never worry, when we’re apart
Love is not a question, that I know
Love is not a question, where tradewinds blow

She says she needs me, it’s not pretend
It’s not a game, to lose or win
Love is not a question, that I know
Love is not a question, where tradewinds blow

I know when she’s not with me
That she’s still true to me
I know that when we’re kissing
She feels just what I feel
And I know it’s really real

Paradise is where, the answer lies
I feel it in her kiss, see it in her eyes
Love is not a question, that I know

I know when she’s not with me
That she’s still true to me
I know that when we’re kissing
She feels just what I feel
And I know it’s really real

Paradise is where, the answer lies
I feel it in her kiss, see it in her eyes
Love is not a question, that I know
No, no, no
Love is not a question, that I know
That I know



A Picture (Larry W. Jones 10/03/2003) (song#2045)

Imagine an island with steel guitars playing
And think of an island where palm trees are swaying
Have you ever seen a sky that’s so blue
Then you’ve seen a picture of me and of you

Have you strolled in Kauai where flowers are growing
Or stood by Waihe’e stream as it’s flowing
If you’ve seen a tuberose when it’s kissed by the dew
Then you’ve seen a picture of me and of you

Can you picture the heavens with stars that are shining
Or a Sunday Manoa morning and leisurely dining
If you look in your heart and see a smile in there too
Then you’ve seen a picture of me and of you

Can you picture the heavens with stars that are shining
Or a Sunday Manoa morning and leisurely dining
If you look in your heart and see a smile in there too
Then you’ve seen a picture of me and of you
Then you’ve seen a picture of me and of you



This Wonderful Dream (Larry W. Jones 10/03/2003) (song#2046)

The tropic night has stars to be viewed
The island moon casts shadows of golden hues
And the only thing that I want to do
Is dream a wonderful dream of you
Strolling down the beach or in a cafe
I think of you each and every day
My thoughts and my speech are all about you
Tonight I’ll dream a wonderful dream about you

It was last June when I fell in love
My heart didn’t ask me what I should do
I saw you there with the breeze in your hair
And I saw a dream when I looked at you
Then you strolled away like a dream that was gone
But you took my heart, my life and my song
I don’t know your name, and never will too
But I still have this dream about you

Then you strolled away like a dream that was gone
But you took my heart, my life and my song
I don’t know your name, and never will too
But I still have this dream about you, oh yes
This wonderful dream about you
I’m in love with a dream, oh yes
This wonderful dream about you



Flowin’ On (Larry W. Jones 10/03/2003) (song#2047)

Like a lonely island in the stream
I search the waters for a dream
Flowin’ on, flowin’ on
Just like the honey to the bee
Love some day will come to me
Flowin’ on, flowin’ on

Like a lonely island in the stream
Sometimes life’s an empty scheme
Flowin’ on, flowin’ on
There’s another lonely island in the stream
And some day she’ll see love’s guiding beam
Toward my heart searching for a dream

Like a drifting ship that needs to be towed
When will the sun bring my rainbow
Flowin’ on, flowin’ on
Like an island before its birth
Deep waters cover its very earth
Flowin’ on, flowin’ on

There’s another lonely island in the stream
And some day she’ll see love’s guiding beam
Toward my heart searching for a dream
Like a lonely island in the stream
I search the waters for a dream
Flowin’ on, flowin’ on

I search the waters for a dream
Flowin’ on



Love For Leilani (Larry W. Jones 10/03/2003) (song#2048)

My love for Leilani
Is more treasured to me
Than all of the treasures
Found in the sea

My love for Leilani
Is deep in my heart
She brings all the pleasures
That love can impart

Oh, the colors of the rainbow
And the glow of her smile divine
Here where tradewinds blow
Came fron heaven’s design

With my love for Leilani
I never will part
For my love for Leilani
Is deep in my heart

For my love for Leilani
Is deep in my heart



We Go Together (Larry W. Jones 10/03/2003) (song#2049)

I have my feet in the sand
And my head’s in the shade
Just lying here watching
A pretty hula maid
We go together
Me and that pretty hula maid
Just like this warm island sand
And this cool island shade

A petty hula maid is like a melody
A lovely song on a tradewind breeze
And I guess it’s so plain
That such a lovely refrain
Is here running circles
Around in my brain

I have my feet in the sand
And my head’s in the shade
Just lying here watching
A pretty hula maid
We go together
Me and that pretty hula maid
Just like this warm island sand
And this cool island shade

A petty hula maid is like a melody
A lovely song on a tradewind breeze
And I guess it’s so plain
That such a lovely refrain
Is here running circles
Around in my brain



Your Island (Larry W. Jones 10/03/2003) (song#2050)

There I sailed, a ship all alone
Without a star to guide from the sky
In day or in night, I could but sigh
For love had always drifted on by
There I sailed, my heart filled with sorrows
Then you came along and filled my tomorrows for me

Your island came into view, on my horizon
Your island came into view, like a sweet dream
You threw out a life line, to me just in time
And ever since I waded ashore
My heart was anchored in love evermore
When you said you’d be mine

Then birds of paradise flew through the air
And sweet tuberoses made a lei for your hair
An empty heart was saved, when you said I do
And a star to guide me, came that day too
I knew that I had found love that’s true
When your island came into view

An empty heart was saved, when you said I do
And a star to guide me, came that day too
I knew that I had found love that’s true
When your island came into view



A Tall Hawaii Blue (Larry W. Jones 10/04/2003) (song#2051)

 

Just play me an ukulele and bring a tall Hawaii blue
And let me drink to a love that’s found somebody new
That girl I knew was true, til yesterday
So, now I’ll drink to a dream that’s gone away

An ukulele and a tall Hawaii blue
Play something happy, even though she broke the rules
Well, my heart’s as sad as it can be, so bring me
An ukulele and a tall Hawaii blue

Play the ukulele happy so I might forget
That she’s makin’ music with my friend
And bring a tall Hawaii blue so it will let
Me forget that a dream just met its end

Just play me an ukulele and bring a tall Hawaii blue
And let me sit here for one more round
My girl has been untrue, and I’ve gotta make it through
A brand new lonely night in old Lahaina town

Play the ukulele happy so I might forget
That she’s makin’ music with my friend
And bring a tall Hawaii blue so it will let
Me forget that a dream just met its end

Just play me an ukulele and bring a tall Hawaii blue
And let me sit here for one more round
My girl has been untrue, and I’ve gotta make it through
A brand new lonely night in old Lahaina town



I’ll Hear Hawaii Call Again (Larry W. Jones 10/04/2003) (song#2052)

 

Waves, crashed against the distant reef
Spraying foam like a grand motif
As we strolled by

Moon, beams were dancing on the bay
Diamonds sparkling in Hawaii nei
For you and me

Sweet, were our kisses under harbor lights
Filling us with warm delights
Just you and I

Island love is just a dream, some say
That islands never call
But you must know that it isn’t so
For your island calls to me
It hurt to say Aloha ‘oe
Don’t you see, don’t you see

Now when the snow
And the winter winds blow cold
I’ll hear Hawaii call again
And I’ll be blue

Island love is just a dream, some say
That islands never call
But you must know that it isn’t so
For your island calls to me
It hurt to say Aloha ‘oe
Don’t you see, don’t you see

Now when the snow
And the winter winds blow cold
I’ll hear Hawaii call again
And I’ll be blue
And I’ll be blue



A Call From The Islands (Larry W. Jones 10/04/2003) (song#2053)

 

Tradewinds will blow from over the sea
Warm love will flow from my heart to thee
A call from the islands
A call from your heart to mine

I will return
For you my heart burns
I’ll come back to your island in the Spring

I’ll give you this lei for your heart to wear
And when you call, I will be there
A call from the islands
A call from your heart to mine

I will return
For you my heart burns
I’ll come back to your island in the Spring

He never returned for any new Spring
And so she died while calling his name
A call from the islands
A call from her heart in vain

I will return
For you my heart burns
I’ll come back to your island in the Spring
I’ll come back to your island in the Spring



Long Tall Texan (Larry W. Jones 10/04/2003) (song#2054)

Some people call me the long tall Texan
Well, that’s as true as it can be
But I’d rather be where tradewinds are blowin’
Over in Hawaii

I need a hula girl to be my baby
A girl from Hawaii blue
But ridin’ the range, I’ll never find her
There’s too much cowboy work to do

I once strolled around old Lahaina town
Sure would like to call it home
But these longhorns keep me busy, sun up to sun down
Not much time to dream about some tropic zone

This cowboy life can make you weary
I’ve got to pack my saddle bags and go
I’ll be ridin’ the range somewhere tomorrow
Dreamin’ of where the tradewinds blow

I’ve been from Santa Fe to San Antone
Not many mustangs have got me thrown
But these longhorns keep me busy, sun up to sun down
Not much time to dream about some tropic zone

I need a hula girl to be my baby
A girl from Hawaii blue
But ridin’ the range, I’ll never find her
There’s too much cowboy work to do

Some people call me the long tall Texan
Well, that’s as true as it can be
But I’d rather be where tradewinds are blowin’
Over in Hawaii
Over in Hawaii



One Special Tree (Larry W. Jones 10/04/2003) (song#2055)

There’s one special tree in a palm tree stand
The fronds wave gently in the breezes so sublime
And carved on that tree there in the sand
Are the words, I’ll love you til the end of time

I will always remember
Those sweet sounding Maui chimes
The day I carved those words for you
I’ll love you til the end of time

But further on down the sand by the sea
Two lovers are strolling so happily
You’re holding hands with somebody new
And I can only wish it were me

By that special tree in a palm tree stand
My dreams you will forever find
And where tradewinds blow, wherever you go
I’ll love you til the end of time

And where tradewinds blow, wherever you go
I’ll love you til the end of time



An Island For Us (Larry W. Jones 10/04/2003) (song#2056)

An island for us, somewhere out at sea
A sweet refrain to gain love for you and me
An island where dreams can flourish
A place to unveil with moon so pale love eternally

An isle for us, somewhere out at sea
A love worthwhile where we can be free

And with our love to keep us warm
We can survive through any storm
An island for us, somewhere out at sea
An island shining in the sun for you and me

For you and me

And with our love to keep us warm
We can survive through any storm
An island for us, somewhere out at sea
An island shining in the sun for you and me

An island shining in the sun for you and me



It’s An Island Tune (Larry W. Jones 10/05/2003) (song#2057)

Did you ever hear in old Lahaina town
On the tradewinds come a strange and pretty sound
It’s an island sound for strolling in the night
Listen closely and you can hear it in the breeze
When the breeze is drifting through palm trees

It’s an island tune for strolling in the night
And the tradewinds sing the song
Even birds of paradise sing along
The peaceful valleys fill the air
Wirh an island tune for hearts to share

It’s an island tune ‘neath a yellow moon
Made for strolling in the month of June
It’s an island tune for strolling in the night

It’s an island tune for strolling in the night
And the tradewinds sing the song
Even birds of paradise sing along
The peaceful valleys fill the air
Wirh an island tune for hearts to share

It’s an island tune ‘neath a yellow moon
Made for strolling in the month of June
It’s an island tune for strolling in the night



An Island Kind Of Love (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2003) (song#2058)

I want an island kind of love
A love that you only find in island sand
And it’s got to be more than just a one night stand
I want an island kind of love

I want a love that’s from a dreamland
So far, they all seem to be from some fairyland
Or somewhere else where they don’t understand
I want an island kind of love

I’ve been trying to expand my dream of wonderland
Been to Dixieland, but they don’t have no island band
Not someone in Cleveland, Oakland, Midland
I need someone who wears a flower garland
I want an island kind of love

And my arms need someone to keep me warm
Someone with island charm
Someone who knows firsthand, a love that’s surely grand
I want an island kind of love, oh yeah

I don’t want an England or a Poland
Farmland, cowhand, deckhand, or flatland
I don’t want any of the above
I just want an island kind of love, oh yeah
I just want an island kind of love



Blue Am I In Love (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2003) (song#2059)

Blue am I, blue am I, in love

My heart fell at the sight
Of you with someone new
My heart fell and now
My dreams are turning blue
My heart fell like the waves
That crash upon the reef
Oh, I didn’t hear farewell but it’s just as well
Blue am I, blue am I, in love

The heart that you stepped on
As you strolled along the shore
Was crushed like a pawn
By the sea where breakers roar
My heart fell when I saw
That love had gone from your eyes
Sweetheart, when did love depart for our paradise
Blue am I, blue am I, in love

My heart fell like the waves
That crash upon the reef
Oh, I didn’t hear farewell but it’s just as well
Blue am I, blue am I, in love



Teardrop On A Tuberose (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2003) (song#2060)

While I was strolling on the island
As twilight brought it to repose
I saw a fragrant lei, a garland
With a teardrop on a tuberose

The reason for the teardrop wasn’t spoken
But in my heart the answer surely shows
The chains of island love were broken
With a teardrop on a tuberose

A tear that comes when eyes are weeping
In paradise where the tradewind blows
Holds all the love that I was keeping
Now just a teardrop on a tuberose

The tear will disappear come tomorrow
But then will come more, I suppose
My love and dreams are now in sorrow
In a teardrop on a tuberose

A tear that comes when eyes are weeping
In paradise where the tradewind blows
Holds all the love that I was keeping
Now just a teardrop on a tuberose

The tear will disappear come tomorrow
But then will come more, I suppose
My love and dreams are now in sorrow
In a teardrop on a tuberose



A Lovely Rose (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2003) (song#2061)

A Lovely rose
Island rose
You’re so lovely
Heaven knows

Where tradewinds blow
That’s where you grow
Love will come to
A lovely rose

Rose so fair
Beyond compare
Hearts you have drawn
That’s foregone

A Lovely rose
Island rose
Dreams have come true
In sweet repose

And I’ll love you
My whole life through
My heart is true to
A Lovely rose
Island rose

My heart is true to
A Lovely rose
Island rose



A Thousand Dreams (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2003) (song#2062)

A thousand dreams of you
Will fill my nights hereafter
Filled with delights and laughter
Tonight is when they’ll start

A thousand dreams of you
Here on this tropic isle
A thousand songs in island style
Will serenade my joyful heart

Your arms
Your charms
The fragrant flower in your hair
Your kiss
Pure bliss
No wonder I’m walking on air

A thousand wishes too
Every one will come true
And here in Hawaii too
A thousand dreams of you

A thousand reasons, a million seasons
Will keep on imparting
For there’s no departing from
A thousand dreams of you



A Few More Leagues To Sail (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2003) (song#2063)

I see the pressure fallin’
Feel the salty spray upon my brow
I know my island destination
Straight ahead unto to bow
I’m sailin’ to the compass dial
And for her love I steer the keel
I can’t wait to reach her isle
Heaven help me with the wheel

Keep the light on at Diamond Head tonight
The reef is hidden if there’s a gale
I know her island’s almost in sight
But I’ve got a few more leagues to sail

That old Davy Jones is waiting
In this wide ocean down below
A watery grave he’s been creating
With gales that always seem to blow
But I’m not listnin’ to his calling
I know an island where palm trees sway
Through that reef this ship’s a-crawlin’
When I reach Honolulu bay

Yes, I’ll be a little worried
Til that light comes into view
I’ll try not to get too hurried
For she’s a love who’s always true

Keep the light on at Diamond Head tonight
The reef is hidden if there’s a gale
I know her island’s almost in sight
But I’ve got a few more leagues to sail



A Laid Back Island Dude (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2003) (song#2064)

An old rowboat and a nice location
I give the fish a bite’n’ chance
An old rowboat and a nice location
It’s better than fightin’ high finance

Here on the bay where breezes blow
Life goes easy with the island flow
I changed my mind about life it seems
Now my songs all have island themes

An old rowboat and a nice location
I’m a laid back island dude

Here on the bay where breezes blow
Life goes easy with the island flow
I changed my mind about life it seems
Now my songs all have island themes

An old rowboat and a nice location
I’m a laid back island dude



A Tropic Zone (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2003) (song#2065)

Say goodbye, the time is nigh
We’re headin’ for a tropic zone
Away from the hustle and the bustle
Of the big city and it’s lights
To a place pretty that just feels right
To an island we can call our own

We’ll have an island of our own
Where love is in the air
No more working to the bone
We’ll have island love to share
And in time I’m sure we’ll find
A brand new peace of mind
Yeah, we’re headin’ for a tropic zone
To an island we can call our own

Oh my love, my own sweet love
I know we’ve been out of touch
But you’re the only one I’m thinking of
And we need this change so much
Let’s head for that tropic zone
To an island we can call our own

We’ll have an island of our own
Where love is in the air
No more working to the bone
We’ll have island love to share
And in time I’m sure we’ll find
A brand new peace of mind
Yeah, we’re headin’ for a tropic zone
To an island we can call our own



Heart Like A Pawn (Larry W. Jones 10/10/2003) (song#2066)

 

You stole my heart like a pawn in old Lahaina town
I said Aloha but you were gone when I turned around
Where breezes play, don’t stroll away from me now
You stole my heart, somehow I’ll find you is my vow

I like your way of hula sway, now my mind’s a blur
Don’t stroll away from the bay, come back where you were
You can’t leave, don’t make me grieve or make me frown
You stole my heart like a pawn in old Lahaina town

I’ve gotta find you, let you know that you’re my girl
And that reminds me that you’ve set mt world awhirl
We met on the lawn when the tropic sun was going down
You stole my heart like a pawn in old Lahaina town

It was just a glance but sweet romance was what it said
Now I’m in a trance and you’re still here in my head
You took me by surprise in paradise, you looked so brown
You stole my heart like a pawn in old Lahaina town

I’ve gotta find you, let you know that you’re my girl
And that reminds me that you’ve set mt world awhirl
We met on the lawn when the tropic sun was going down
You stole my heart like a pawn in old Lahaina town



Now That I’m Blue (Larry W. Jones 10/10/2003) (song#2067)

 

My days are short and nights are long
Now that I’m blue and all alone
Eternity doesn’t seem to know
That every night is followed by a dawn

Everything I prize in paradise is gone
Now that I’m blue and all alone

I know I say that I will find a way
Where tradewinds blow and breezes play
To put away my misery almost every day
And in the long nights waiting for the dawn

Everything I prize in paradise is gone
Now that I’m blue and all alone

My days are short and nights are long
Now that I’m blue and all alone
Eternity doesn’t seem to know
That every night is followed by a dawn

Everything I prize in paradise is gone
Now that I’m blue and all alone



Tetiaroa Moon (Larry W. Jones 10/10/2003) (song#2068)

 

Shine above, Tetiaroa moon
Shine upon white silver sands
Shine above, Tetiaroa moon
Bring back my love to me again

Tetiaroa moon, in paradise
Shine for me now, her love entice
Your golden beams will suffice
Tetiaroa moon

With your beams of golden light
You can bring her here tonight
Shine above, Tetiaroa moon
Bring to Polynesia my delight

And then the island guitars will play
As we stroll down by the bay
You will understand it all real soon
Tetiaroa moon

Tetiaroa moon, in paradise
Shine for me now, her love entice
Your golden beams will suffice
Tetiaroa moon

Shine above, Tetiaroa moon
Shine upon white silver sands
Shine above, Tetiaroa moon
Bring back my love to me again



Moonlight Sails (Larry W. Jones 10/10/2003) (song#2069)

 

Moonlight on the sails, from up above
Moonlight comes to tell me of your love
Standing by the rail with dreams thereof
Moonlight on the sails has come to tell me of your love

When I hold you in my arms, this night divine
Moonlight told me that your charms, were really mine
There’s no need to be alarmed by love’s design
Moonlight and your charms have come to tell me of your love

Here in this paradise, of moonlit skies
Sweet love is in your eyes, there’s no disguise
You’re the reason why this wedding ring I buy
Moonlight in your eyes has come to tell me of your love

Let me take this magic time and tell you of my vows
Moonlight can make the wine that love like this allows
This night of nights with you goes hand in glove
Moonlight on the sails has come to tell me of your love

Here in this paradise, of moonlit skies
Sweet love is in your eyes, there’s no disguise
You’re the reason why this wedding ring I buy
Moonlight in your eyes has come to tell me of your love

Let me take this magic time and tell you of my vows
Moonlight can make the wine that love like this allows
This night of nights with you goes hand in glove
Moonlight on the sails has come to tell me of your love



After The Dancin’ (Larry W. Jones 10/10/2003) (song#2070)

 

So we romance for awhile
After the dancin’
Strolling hand in hand down by the bay
And I know you can hear
What the tradewind is whispering today
It’s the soft sweet refrain
That we both are feelin’
Here face to face in this paradise
And my love for you is such
That I know you can see it in my eyes
Your love is takin’ me
To the far side of the moon
And your love is sweeter than
An island tune

So we romance for awhile
After the dancin’
I place a flower in your hair
And the music that I hear
On the breeze is almost like a prayer
And I know that this time
You feel it too
And after the dancin’, forever I’ll be romancin’ you

So we romance for awhile
After the dancin’
I place a flower in your hair
And the music that I hear
On the breeze is almost like a prayer
And I know that this time
You feel it too
And after the dancin’, forever I’ll be romancin’ you

Oh, after the dancin’
Forever I’ll be romancin’ you
Yes, after the dancin’, forever I’ll be romancin’ you

Hawaiian Sand (Larry W. Jones 10/10/2003) (song#2071)

Balmy days in summertime, Sunday Manoa mornings
Island ways are so sublime, Honolulu calling
I remember so well those warm island days
When we went strolling in Hawaiian sand

Luau dances on Friday nights, fish and poi consuming
That’s how romance turned out right, drums were booming
I remember so well those warm island nights
When we went strolling in Hawaiian sand

You and I were young back then, love was just a game
But we’re still one in love since I changed your name
I remember so well those songs from island bands
When we went strolling in Hawaiian sand

On a balmy day come summertime, Sunday Manoa morning
We’re going back to make up time, Honolulu calling
We’ll relive so well those warm island days
And we’ll go strolling in Hawaiian sand

On a balmy day come summertime, Sunday Manoa morning
We’re going back to make up time, Honolulu calling
We’ll relive so well those warm island days
And we’ll go strolling in Hawaiian sand



Here’s To Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 10/10/2003) (song#2072)

 

When I was a young boy I lived on the mainland
And I dreamed of fair islands so far away
I dreamed I was sailing over oceans to warm sand
And I always believed I would live there some day

Well it took a lot of craving and a little saving
And a lot of planning to make dreams come true
Some plans were altered but my heart never faltered
And I finally made it to my Hawaii blue

So, here’s to Hawaii, land of Aloha
Here’s to islands where tradewinds blow free
Here’s to Hawaii where I still stand in awe
Here’s to Hawaii for my love and and me

I sleep to the sounds of steel guitar and ukulele
And wake in the mornings with no thought of pain
The love of my life is right here beside me
We know life in the islands is not lived in vain

So, here’s to Hawaii, land of Aloha
Here’s to islands where tradewinds blow free
Here’s to Hawaii where I still stand in awe
Here’s to Hawaii for my love and and me



Rose Of My Isle (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2003) (song#2073)

 

We are true lovers in this island scene
Strolling together with no other between
Sometimes it’s hard to find time it seems
To let you know your meaning to me

You are the rose of my isle
You are my love that makes life worthwhile
A flower lei with grace and with style
You are the rose of my isle

If tomorrow should bring sorrow and pain
You would be here and love would still reign
You’re my sun up above and my moon to beguile
You are the rose of my isle

You are the rose of my isle
You are my love that makes life worthwhile
A flower lei with grace and with style
You are the rose of my isle

Through good times and bad, you’re always there
With you there’s nothing that love cannot bear
You’re like the music from sweet island bands
Love is no magic trick when we stroll hand in hand

You are the rose of my isle
You are my love that makes life worthwhile
A flower lei with grace and with style
You are the rose of my isle



All I Recall (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2003) (song#2074)

 

Maui days with balmy breezes, a flower in your hair
Are the things that I remember when love was in the air
Maui nights and moonlit beaches, places to unwind
That’s all I recall, all that comes into mind

Those were seasons when island love held sway
Don’t know the reasons why we slowly drifted away
I should have seen the signs but I guess I was blind
That’s all I recall, all that comes into mind

I wonder where you are at this time
I still see your face and your grace in my mind
I know you loved me til love ran out of time
That’s all I recall, all that comes into mind

Every way, my love, Maui days are still the same
Except the dove has flown away with love’s last flame
You’re still my Maui love, not just a friend of mine
That’s all I recall, all that comes into mind



A New Kind Of Rainbow (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2003) (song#2075)

 

There’s a new kind of rainbow in the cloud
That I’ve never seen before
It reminds me of your words out loud
That make me love you all the more

Words of love for me that you confess
Here by the sea is my best guess
Why I see a new kind of rainbow
That I’ve never seen before

It picks me up when I feel down
That’s why I need your love around
There’s a new kind of rainbow in old Lahaina town
That I’ve never seen before

There’s a new kind of rainbow where breezes blow
Shining over a sandy shore
It’s there to remind me with its glow
Your love is sweet as a candy store

Words of love for me that you confess
Here by the sea is my best guess
Why I see a new kind of rainbow
That I’ve never seen before

It picks me up when I feel down
That’s why I need your love around
There’s a new kind of rainbow in old Lahaina town
That I’ve never seen before



Beating Just For You (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2003) (song#2076)

 

I look into your eyes and I perceive
A playbook filled with stars on velvet blue
And I see my heart there, I believe
Beating just for you

Here on the isle, the world is fine
And dreams come true in Hawaii blue
My heart knows every dream of mine
Beating just for you

Love for you here in my heart will reign
Until time itself is through
When you’re near I hear a sweet refrain
A song about my loving you

It seems that you’re the dreams and songs I sing
The moonlight in the beams and the stars on velvet blue
My heart knows every dream of mine
Beating just for you

Love for you here in my heart will reign
Until time itself is through
When you’re near I hear a sweet refrain
A song about my loving you

It seems that you’re the dreams and songs I sing
The moonlight in the beams and the stars on velvet blue
My heart knows every dream of mine
Beating just for you



This Lei Of Flowers (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2003) (song#2077)

 

We stroll along hand in hand
Without any word we understand
Rainbows in the sky in Hawaii
Shine up there for you and me
Dreams of ours are coming true
And this lei of flowers says I love you

I can feel all your magic charms
And I know our love will keep us warm
I hear Maui chimes when the bluebird sings
This love of mine you have given wings
Tuberoses are kissed by the tropic dew
And this lei of flowers says I love you

Here where the graceful palm trees sway
I feel like I own every summer day
And when Mauna Kea is covered with snow
I still feel the warmth of island love aglow
Every island road leads me back to you
And this lei of flowers says I love you

Every island love song’s a melody
That tells me you belong to only me
I hear Maui chimes when the bluebird sings
This love of mine you have given wings
You’re my island dream where dreams come true
And this lei of flowers says I love you

I hear Maui chimes when the bluebird sings
This love of mine you have given wings
You’re my island dream where dreams come true
And this lei of flowers says I love you
This lei of flowers says I love you



Forever (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2003) (song#2078)

 

My love for you will last, forever
With a love that’s deep and vast, forever
When the things that you contrive
Need some help to stay alive
I will help it to survive, forever, forever

Dreams may not come true, forever
On your team I’ll be with you, forever
Not just here on the isle
Not for just a country mile
You and I will go in style, forever

Forever is a long time, but forever you will be mine
Not just til the twelfth of never, but forever

Dreams may not come true, forever
On your team I’ll be with you, forever
Not just here on the isle
Not for just a country mile
You and I will go in style, forever

Forever is a long time, but forever you will be mine
Not just til the twelfth of never, but forever



Are My Dreams In Vain (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2003) (song#2079)

 

Are my dreams in vain
Will tomorrow bring me pain
Was our love just a game
Are my dreams in vain

Am I wrong to complain
Can this love be maintained
Where is that sweet refrain
Are my dreams in vain

Here on this isle in the sea
You were sweet as sugar cane
I thought our love was meant to be
Will I now be all alone again

Our love in Hawaii blue
Doesn’t seem to be the same
Will our dreams still come true
Are my dreams in vain

Here on this isle in the sea
You were sweet as sugar cane
I thought our love was meant to be
Will I now be all alone again

Our love in Hawaii blue
Doesn’t seem to be the same
Will our dreams still come true
Are my dreams in vain



Untrue Love (Larry W. Jones 10/11/2003) (song#2080)

 

I know there’s something on your mind
I wonder what it is that bothers you
Don’t walk away from love that’s true
For untrue love never was my kind

I don’t want to lose you now
You’re the only love that’s on my mind
But I guess it doesn’t matter anyhow
If love that’s true is not your kind

I’ll be a lonely island in the stream
But I can’t live with an empty dream
I’ll be better off if you’re not mine
If love that’s true is not your kind

I’ll be a lonely island in the stream
But I can’t live with an empty dream
I’ll be better off if you’re not mine
If love that’s true is not your kind

If love that’s true is not your kind



Homesick For My Island Home (Larry W. Jones 10/12/2003) (song#2081)

 

I miss Hawaii blue, been gone a spell
Dreams are all I’ve got, can’t you tell
Friends just stir the pot when they say to me
You just need sympathy and time to roam
But I’m homesick for my island home

My heart will skip when this ship anchors soon
I’ll stroll around old Lahaina town ‘neath the moon
I can’t wait to breathe the air, hear island tunes
Watch the reef turn the crashing waves into foam
Yeah, I’m homesick for my island home

Homesick is a bad thing if you’ve got nowhere to go
But homesick is a good thing where tradewinds blow
I can see that little grass shack
And Kamehameha school where they whacked my backside
Daddy digging the luau pit somewhere outside

“No place like home sweet home” on the wall
Yes, I still hear my islands of Hawaii call
Surfing the waves out on the bay
I remember the old talk stories told every day
Yeah, I’m homesick for my island home
Homesick for my island home



Lonely Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 10/12/2003) (song#2082)

 

Lost in a mainland town, feelin’ kinda down
I found a lonely island rose
A smile on her face to hide a broken heart
A lonely mainland place where island sorrows start
She’s somebody’s daughter, away from blue water
There’s a mother with ohana love, on an island thinking of
Her island rose who went away, went astray
For her baby rose she kneels to pray, every day

I found a lonely island rose in a mainland garden
Strolling all alone, little lonely island rose
There’s no tropic sun for her now shining
Blue Hawaiian skies are for what she’s pining
I found a lonely island rose in a mainland garden
Losing at the game of moth attracted to the flame
Underneath her smile, I see sorrow for her isle
Where sorrow grows, I found a lonely island rose

I found a lonely island rose in a mainland garden
Strolling all alone, little lonely island rose
There’s no tropic sun for her now shining
Blue Hawaiian skies are for what she’s pining
I found a lonely island rose in a mainland garden
Losing at the game of moth attracted to the flame
Now that she’s in my heart, we’ll return for a new start
In a mainland garden, I found a lonely island rose



All I Truly Want (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2003) (song#2083)

 

I have my beach sand, got my sun tan, all I want is a wahini
I have my rubba slippahs, got my land lubba flippahs
I have the song and the tropic zone and I got the mana
Now all I want’s a wahini so I can win’er

If she’ll just stroll on down to old Lahaina town
And if she’ll say Aloha, E Ku’u ipo Mau loa
I’ll toss my rubba slippas and my land lubba flippas
All I truly want is a wahini around

Instrumental

I have my beach sand, got my sun tan, all I want is a wahini
I have my rubba slippahs, got my land lubba flippahs
I have the song and the tropic zone and I got the mana
Now all I want’s a wahini so I can win’er

Yeah, if she’ll just stroll, stroll on down to old Lahaina town
And if, if she’ll say Aloha, E Ku’u ipo Mau loa
I’ll toss my rubba slippas and my land lubba flippas
All I truly want is a wahini around

All I truly want is a wahini around



Things I Find In You (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2003) (song#2084)

 

Brown tanned noses and tuberoses
Rainbows and guitars playing slack key
Outrigger canoes and ocean blues
Things of Hawaii
Maui chimes, island times
Things in paradise to view
These are things that remind me of
The things I find in you

Birds of paradise and runways
Things that take to the skies
Tropic sunrise and lovely bays
A tradewind that sighs
Waikiki lights, moonlit nights
A place where dreams come true
These are things that remind me of
The things I find in you

Summertime the whole year long
Evening breezes cool
The things I find are like a song
When I dream of you

June time dances, island romances
Stars shining oh, so bright
Mountains and valleys
Things about which to write
Hula trees, my heart’s keys
A kiss that’s sure to please
These are things that remind me of
The things I find in you

Summertime the whole year long
Evening breezes cool
The things I find are like a song
When I dream of you

These are things that remind me of
The things I find in you



In My Dreaming (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2003) (song#2085)

In paradise I will miss you
In dreams I will kiss you
Come September, I’ll be so blue
Here where the palm trees sway
I’ll stroll alone down by the bay
And in dreams I’ll still be loving you

In dreams I’ll be holding
A love that’s unfolding
Even though I know there’s no way
Here where the palm trees sway
I’ll stroll alone down by the bay
And in dreams I’ll still be loving you

In paradise I will miss you
In dreams I will kiss you
Come September, I’ll be so blue
Here where the palm trees sway
I’ll stroll alone down by the bay
And in dreams I’ll still be loving you

In my dreaming, in my dreaming
In my dreaming I’ll still be loving you

In dreams I’ll be holding
A love that’s unfolding
Even though I know there’s no way
Here where the palm trees sway
I’ll stroll alone down by the bay
And in dreams I’ll still be loving you

In my dreaming, in my dreaming
In my dreaming I’ll still be loving you



All You Get (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2003) (song#2086)

 

Just like the motion when the ocean falls
Her devotion was the lotion for my heartfelt calls
But in time the beam of love turned into a dream
Now it seems I’m just a lonely island in the stream

All you get from an island in the stream is a dream
When the night time starts, that’s when it does its part
All you get from an island in the stream is a dream
Seems like a dream is only made for a broken heart

These tears in the sand is from a lonely island man
There’s no future in paradise that I can see
Tomorrow there’ll be love songs from island bands
But there’ll be sorrow coming here to visit me

All you get from an island in the stream is a dream
When the night time starts, that’s when it does its part
All you get from an island in the stream is a dream
Seems like a dream is only made for a broken heart



Brown Hula Maids (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2003) (song#2087)

Underneath Maui skies of blue
And coco palms waving in the breeze
Brown hula maids come into view
When steel guitars play Aloha ‘oe

Sweet melodies I then hear sing
Voices bringing such delight
Brown hula maids with skirts that swing
Dance into the tropic night

Brown hula maids will dance for you
That Kanaka hula ku’u ipo too
Steel guitars and ukuleles play
Songs of love on Kaanapali bay

Sweet melodies I then hear sing
Voices bringing such delight
Brown hula maids with skirts that swing
Dance into the tropic night

Brown hula maids will dance for you
That Kanaka hula ku’u ipo too
Steel guitars and ukuleles play
Songs of love on Kaanapali bay



Among My Memories (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2003) (song#2088)

 

The only thing that’s left to see
Of island days in Hawaii
Are dreams that still come haunting me
Among my memories

Warm summer days with skies of blue
A flower lei from me to you
An island love that once was true
Among my memories

Another trinket I’ll admit
Is like a drink you never get
When love runs dry and it won’t fit
Among my memories

I remember how love got its start
Before time took it all apart
I left on the isle my broken heart
Among my memories

Warm summer days with skies of blue
A flower lei from me to you
An island love that once was true
Among my memories

Another trinket I’ll admit
Is like a drink you never get
When love runs dry and it won’t fit
Among my memories



Tropical Tango (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2003) (song#2089)

 

Tropical tango is sweet as a mango in Hawaii
Tropical tango is salza and kiho’alu
Slack key guitar under the stars, and a little bolero
You don’t have to be an ali’i or Romero
Tropical tango where breezes blow is nothing new

You’ll find a hula girl swaying
To a beautiful typical artistical tune
Tropical tango is Hawaiian love saying
Let’s rumba and samba and mambo the moon
Tropical tango where breezes blow is nothing new

This dance of love is the romance of old Hawaii
Somehow it seems, it makes all your dreams come true

Island luaus are filled with more wows each night
When they serve up kalua with poi and mango
Island romance has more of a chance alright
When you take the chance to dance the tropical tango
When you take the chance to dance the tropical tango



My Island Angel (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2003) (song#2090)

 

It’s just like paradise
Here in Hawaii blue
You’re an island angel
My dream that’s come true
And I truly love you, I do
Island angel, my island angel

When you’re so close to me
It’s such a treat
I can almost hear
My heart when it beats
And I truly love you, I do
Island angel, my island angel

Oh yes, I love you, yes I do
There’s no other love here in Hawaii blue
No other love
But you

Please, please believe me
And never leave me alone
Island angel, never grieve me
Here in this tropic zone
Because I truly love you, I do
Island angel, my island angel

Oh yes, I love you, yes I do
There’s no other love here in Hawaii blue
No other love
But you



New Angel (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2003) (song#2091)

 

If you hadn’t strolled into town
I would not have seen you
New angel strolling through old Lahaina town
And I helped to repair your broken dreams
And waited long enough to see you smile
For awhile
Trying to not let you frown
In old Lahaina town

I figured someday you’d stroll away
For dreams are everywhere to be found
If you leave, I’ll be blue
But I’ll remember you being around
New angel strolling through old Lahaina town
So, stroll on
Stroll on
Through this tropic zone

I’d rather have sweet dreams than to see you frown
So, stroll on if you must, love
But I’ll remember you being around
New angel strolling through old Lahaina town
So, stroll on if you must, love
But I’ll remember you being around
New angel strolling through old Lahaina town
New angel strolling through old Lahaina town



My Sweet Leilani (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2003) (song#2092)

 

Tonight while the twilight is falling
Again comes that vision I see
Tradewinds of the islands are calling
Where I strolled with my sweet Leilani

Sweet Leilani, Leilani
For you my poor heart still cries
‘O Ku’u Aloha No ‘Oe mau loa
I miss my sweet Leilani in paradise

Our love was filled with emotion
And that ocean I crossed tortures me
For I will never love another
As I love my sweet Leilani

Sweet Leilani, Leilani
For you my poor heart still cries
‘O Ku’u Aloha No ‘Oe mau loa
I miss my sweet Leilani in paradise

‘O Ku’u Aloha No ‘Oe mau loa
I miss my sweet Leilani in paradise



Nuku Hiva And Hiva Oa (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2003) (song#2093)

 

There are islands in the Marquesas
Places where I’d like to place us
Where the same gentle tradewinds blow
As they did ten thousand years ago

Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa
Music from guitars made of koa
Places where we could just unwind
Islands where love will ease your mind

Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa
Places in the Marquesas archipelago
Ease your mind, just unwind
Don’t worry about lumbago

Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa
Places where they don’t fight the snow
Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa
Are the places where I want to go

There are islands in the Marquesas
Places where I’d like to place us
Where the same gentle tradewinds blow
As they did ten thousand years ago

Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa
Music from guitars made of koa
Places where we could just unwind
Islands where love will ease your mind

Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa
Islands where love will ease your mind



Waves Of History (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2003) (song#2094)

 

As I stroll down by the sea
The waves speak of history to me
Talk stories of island days gone by
When sailors of old
Men and women bold
Arrived to claim this paradise

The waves breaking into foam
Recalls those long off days
When long canoes the wide oceans roamed
Following the old island ways
That even now still amaze
Searching for islands to call home

They were not mythical men
Even though we’ll never see them again
Now these isles we call our own
This paradise here in the sea
These islands that call to you and me
Where the spirit of Aloha forever roams

As I stroll down by the sea
The waves speak of history to me
Talk stories of island days gone by
I dream of the old island ways
And even now I’m amazed
With this, my island paradise



I Stroll The Sand (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2003) (song#2095)

 

I stroll the sand like any man
I hold my heart here in my hand
Nobody sees or understands
How love can fade away

This is paradise, it’s true
Islands somewhere in the blue
But that’s the color of my heart too
Every day

The day you left and went away
Palm trees seemed to lose their sway
They waved goodbye as if to say
Aloha ‘oe

Guess I’ll take the outbound flight
No use to stay here another night
The future’s dark, it isn’t bright
Tears will start, you see

I stroll the sand an empty man
What happened to our future plans
My heart will never understand
Why you went away



Darling Lorelei (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2003) (song#2096)

 

Over island shores the bluebirds fly
Where early morning brings the dew
One there to adore is my Lorelei
Who gave to me her promise true
Who gave to me her promise true
Words of love never forget will I
And for my island darling Lorelei
I will love her til the day I die

Her brow from the tropic sun is brown
Her skin is soft as the softest down
Her face is the fairest all around
More beauty than fits a queenly crown
More beauty than fits a queenly crown
Ever laughing gaily are her eyes
And for my island darling Lorelei
I will love her til the day I die

Like the fragrant flower in her hair
Her beauty is known most everywhere
And like the song when lovers meet
Her voice is low and oh so sweet
Her voice is low and oh so sweet
She’s my sun and rainbow in the sky
And for my island darling Lorelei
I will love her til the day I die



Here Comes The Lightning (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2003) (song#2097)

 

Here comes the lightning
A flashing of fire and light
On the horizon red clouds painting the sky
Gotta steer home to my island, child and wife
The island is somewhere straight ahead

Here comes the lightning
Scares me to death, the reef at low tide
Sometimes I wonder if I’ll see my bride
Gotta steer home to the table she’s spread
The island is somewhere straight ahead

Thirty five nautical miles to go
Another thirty five nautical miles to home
Wish I could ask the sun to keep his light on
But here comes the lightning instead
The island is somewhere straight ahead

On the horizon red clouds painting the sky
Here comes the lightning, hope I don’t die
Gotta steer home to my island, child and wife
Through the reef to my love with cheeks rosy red
The island is somewhere straight ahead

Here comes the lightning
The island is somewhere straight ahead



Another Island In The Stream (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2003) (song#2098)

 

The ship is fading from the harbor lights
The band’s still playing songs into the night
I wish you’d stayed so I could hold you tight
Maybe again we’ll both be seen
On another island in the stream

Flower leis are floating on the bay
Thrown by lovers as they sailed away
Meaning that they’ll come back another day
Maybe again we’ll both be seen
On another island in the stream

On another island in the stream
This one is now the lonliest one I’ve seen
I don’t know just when it will be or where
Maybe someday I’ll see you there
On another island in the stream

This used to be paradise day and night
Til your ship faded from the harbor lights
The only way I know to make it right
Is when again we’ll both be seen
On another island in the stream



Beyond Description (Larry W. Jones 10/18/2003) (song#2099)

 

How can I describe
A story of love and deep devotion
A story of island love deeper than the ocean
The way she fills my heart’s emotion
To what can I ascribe

With her shy Aloha
She filled up that empty world I had
Showed me ways to chase away the sad
And made my island world forever glad
She’s clad with Aloha love

With that gentle start
She caused a rainbow here to shine
Let me hear the love in Maui chimes
Played upon the strings between our hearts
Strolled along with me so many times
Sang island songs with sweetest rhymes
She’s an island work of art

How long will our love be
How can you measure the water in the sea
There’s no answer but like the tradewind air
Where island love is always whispered there
Her love and mine will always be



Twenty One Hundred (Larry W. Jones 10/19/2003) (song#2100)

 

Twenty one hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Twenty one hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Twenty one hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Twenty one hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Twenty one hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Twenty one hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Twenty one hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Twenty one hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
Twenty one hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun



Tokelau (Larry W. Jones 10/19/2003) (song#2101)

I dreamed about Tokelau the other night
So far away, out of mind and out of sight
Atafu and Nukunonu
Fakaofo and Olosenga too

Little atolls in a wide sea of blue
Everyone knows everyone it seems
No wonder, for all of them are few
But Tokelau is beautiful and free

And when I dreamed of Tokelau
One thing I knew for sure
Adversities could never break their vow
For island love to endure

Tokelauans are proud and free
In the southern seas afar
Atafu, Nukunonu, Fakaofo and Olosenga
Are their shining island stars

I dreamed about Tokelau the other night
So far away, out of mind and out of sight
Atafu and Nukunonu
Fakaofo and Olosenga too



Island Love (Larry W. Jones 10/19/2003) (song#2102)

Island love is not just for the young
Stars are plentiful and you can have one too
Island love is wonderfully sung
When an island miss gives you a kiss that’s true

An island shower may catch you by surprise
But the rain brings flowers for her fragrant lei
An island love can still be yours in paradise
So if she’s for you, don’t let her stroll away

Island love is not just for the young
Stars are plentiful and you can have one too
Island love is wonderfully sung
When an island miss gives you a kiss that’s true

An island shower may catch you by surprise
But the rain brings flowers for her fragrant lei
An island love can still be yours in paradise
So if she’s for you, don’t let her stroll away



Hawaii Played The Steel Guitar (Larry W. Jones 10/19/2003) (song#2103)

 

Hawaii played the steel guitar
And June brought out the moon
My heart fell like a shooting star
And romance was every island tune

Hawaii played the steel guitar
And it wasn’t long that soon
She stole my heart away afar
Somewhere beyond the moon

Then came along July and it looked so very sly
He knew the song was just another fairy tale and lie

Hawaii played the steel guitar
And the moon in June sure played its part
I fell in love too soon and like a shooting star
Was strewn the pieces of my heart

Then came along July and it looked so very sly
He knew the song was just another fairy tale and lie

Hawaii played the steel guitar
And the moon in June sure played its part
I fell in love too soon and like a shooting star
Was strewn the pieces of my heart



My Dreams Of You (Larry W. Jones 10/19/2003) (song#2104)

 

Even if the stars die out and fall
Even if the bluebirds flew
I know I wouldn’t care at all
As long as my dreams of you come true

I feel so warm in your arms
Like island skies in the sun
I’m in paradise with your charms
Since our love so true has begun

The future looks bright ahead
Let’s forget about the past
Concentrate on our dreams instead
And make this love last
We’ll count how many times
We hear those Maui chimes
Islands in the stream will never be blue
As long as my dreams of you come true

The future looks bright ahead
Let’s forget about the past
Concentrate on our dreams instead
And make this love last
We’ll count how many times
We hear those Maui chimes
Islands in the stream will never be blue
As long as my dreams of you come true

As long as my dreams of you come true



Love Had To Die (Larry W. Jones 10/19/2003) (song#2105)

 

On the island every day
I watch as couples stroll their way
Happy faces by the sea
They don’t look at me
I watch and wonder why
Love had to die

Money can’t buy happiness
Love is not for all, I guess
That’s why the only things I’ve found
Are empty dreams in old Lahaina town
I watch and wonder why
Love had to die

On the island every day
I watch as couples stroll their way
It looks like fun, the things they do
I used to do them too
I watch and wonder why
Love had to die

Money can’t buy happiness
Love is not for all, I guess
That’s why the only things I’ve found
Are empty dreams in old Lahaina town
I watch and wonder why
Love had to die



Finally (Larry W. Jones 10/19/2003) (song#2106)

 

Finally, love is just where it belongs
The emptiness is gone
There must be something wrong
Cause life is happy as a song
Finally

Oh, finally
The color of the moon isn’t blue
The island made my dreams come true
As I strolled along with you
Finally

I found a story from a book of gold
A real live dream that I can hold
I found a reason for a love affair
That will last forever in the tropic air

Oh, your smile is heavenly
A dream time reality
And I’m glad that you agree
That love will last eternally
Finally

Finally, love is just where it belongs
The emptiness is gone
There must be something wrong
Cause life is happy as a song
Finally



Top Of Everything (Larry W. Jones 10/19/2003) (song#2107)

 

At the top of a mountain
You’ll find Maunakea’s snow
At the top of Aloha tower
You’ll feel the tradewinds blow
And our love on this island
Is like a flag unfurled
Cause our love is a true love
And it’s at the top of the world

At the top of the charts
You’ll find a song of love
At the top of a palm tree
There sits a morning dove
And our love on this island
Is at the top of the game
Cause our love is a true love
And it’s at the top of everything

At the top of the charts
You’ll find a song of love
At the top of a palm tree
There sits a morning dove
And our love on this island
Is at the top of the game
Cause our love is a true love
And it’s at the top of everything

And our love on this island
Is at the top of the game
Cause our love is a true love
And it’s at the top of everything



Honolulu Zoo (Larry W. Jones 10/20/2003) (song#2108)

 

Let me tell you
About the Honolulu zoo
There’s something strange there
Something strange but true

It’s just an easy breezy stroll
To Kapahulu Avenue
At the intersection of Kalakaua Avenue
Or take the Ala Moana bus
Through Waikiki without a fuss
To see the animals at Honolulu zoo

Let me tell you
About the Honolulu zoo
There’s something strange there
Something strange but true

The Addra gazell is something swell
The wart hog would like to ring your bell
The Fernando lama does the samba just for fun
The big black rhino had an albino
The chimpanzees eat their fleas
And the flamingo eats his mango in the tropic sun

The red hornbill will give you a thrill
The Nile crocodile took a sleeping pill
The place will make a monkey out of you
Yeah, there’s something strange
At the Honolulu zoo



An Easy Dream (Larry W. Jones 10/20/2003) (song#2109)

 

After you’ve grown mellow, my fellow
And been here as long as I
You’ll remember before December came
That years now mellow, my fellow
Just aren’t the same

And of all the many islands
That you’ve strolled upon in the stream
You’ll oft recall
That when Hawaii called
Life was an easy dream
An easy dream

Island, island
Wahini and kane keiki playland
While you were growing there
The same tradewinds were blowing there
Child land, keiki magic island
Take a stroll down mem’ry lane
For you can never return again

And of all the many islands
That you’ve strolled upon in the stream
You’ll oft recall
That when Hawaii called
Life was an easy dream
An easy dream



So Warm (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2003) (song#2110)

 

Let the tradewinds flow, let our love grow
Baby, hand in hand, strolling in the sand
You’re an island work of art, painted on my heart
You feel so warm in the island sun

Steel guitars play, steals my heart away
Songs of love for me, and you by the sea
You feel so real, you’re my only one
You feel so warm in the island sun
Let the tradewinds flow, let our love grow
You feel so warm in the island sun
So warm in the island sun

Oh, let the tradewinds flow, let our love grow
You know dreams come true, for me and you
There’ll be no regrets, so glad we met
So warm, oh, so warm
You feel so warm in the island sun
So warm in the island sun

Let the tradewinds flow, let our love grow
So warm in the island sun



Love Slipped By (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2003) (song#2111)

 

Time slips by, here in paradise
It’s only been a few days, but oh, in so many ways
Something happened to our song
What went wrong with the love I thought was strong
Love slipped by, here in paradise

And darling, I miss you
Darling, I miss you
Recall when it didn’t rain at all
When we first heard the islands call
And darling, I miss you
Darling, I miss you
And I wish this song was never sung at all

I might have to find another place and scene
But anywhere I’d only be a lonely island in the stream
Cause I would always see your face, it seems
And I’m no good without you in my dreams

And darling, I miss you
Darling, I miss you
Recall when it didn’t rain at all
When we first heard the islands call
And darling, I miss you
Darling, I miss you
And I wish this song was never sung at all



Baby, You’re Mine (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2003) (song#2112)

 

Baby, you’re mine
Baby, you’re mine
And you’ll be mine until the vinyards run out of wine
Mine, until the oceans lose their brine
Baby, hear my words, our love will be divine

Baby, you’re mine
Baby, you’re mine
And you’ll be mine until the islands run out of sand
Mine, until birds of paradise all disband
Baby, hear my words, I’ll always be your island man

My love will be for you like the flooding tide
Here in Hawaii blue, strolling side by side
Come what may, by your side I’ll stay
And every day, right here by the bay…

Baby, you’re mine
Baby, you’re mine
And you’ll be mine until the islands run out of sand
Mine until birds of paradise all disband
Baby, hear my words, I’ll always be your island man

Until the vineyards run out of wine
Baby, you’re mine
Until birds of paradise all disband
Baby, you’re mine



Got Me Strollin’ (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2003) (song#2113)

 

Got me strollin’
Got me trollin’
Got me stroll stroll trollin’ for you
Any day with you, I love the view
You know you can lead me
Got me strollin’ with you by the sea
Darlin’, hope to love you endlessly

Strollin’ up
Strollin’ down
Strollin’ up and down old Lahaina town
Down by where the breakers roll
You know you can lead me
Got me strollin’ with you by the sea
Darlin’, love for you is outta control

Got me dreamin’
Got me schemin’
Got me dream dream schemin’ for you
Here in Hawaii blue
You know you can lead me
Got me strollin’ with you by the sea
Darlin’, hope my dreams will all come true



Baby, When Islands Call (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2003) (song#2114)

 

Some men sail the ocean
Some show no emotion
Some men have no devotion
That’s not the way it is with me
Cause baby, when islands call
Baby, where tradewinds blow
To your island I would swim or crawl
Baby, I love you so, baby, I love you so

I love you more than silver
I love you more than gold
I love you in every way
That a love story can be told
Cause baby, when islands call
Baby, where tradewinds blow
To your island I would swim or crawl
Baby, I love you so, baby, I love you so

I may be just a poor man
Got a lot of steps to climb
But I’ll find the time in island sand
To hear your sweet Maui chimes
Cause baby, when islands call
Baby, where tradewinds blow
To your island I would swim or crawl
Baby, I love you so, baby, I love you so



Gold On The Moon (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2115)

 

There’s a lot of gold on the moon tonight
There’s no darkness in its golden light
Gold that colors my thoughts and dreams
Golden is my island here in the stream

There’s a lot of gold on the moon tonight
There’s no coldness in its golden light
Gold that colors a love that grows
Golden is my love where tradewinds blow

There’s a lot of gold on the moon tonight
And you are so beautiful in my sight
Gold that colors the days ahead
Golden were your words that I heard said

Our wedding day will be in June
Under the beams of a golden moon
There’s a lot of gold on the moon tonight
Two hearts of gold will love unite

There’s a lot of gold on the moon tonight
And you are so beautiful in my sight
Gold that colors the days ahead
Golden were your words that I heard said

Our wedding day will be in June
Under the beams of a golden moon
There’s a lot of gold on the moon tonight
Two hearts of gold will love unite
There’s a lot of gold on the moon tonight



More-a Bora Bora (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2116)

 

Oh, I’d love to see more-a Bora Bora
Where Mt Otemanu guards the bays of blue
Where I’d paddle my canoe

Oh, I just adore-a Bora Bora
With a palm tree to climb it
And the climate is just right for me

My dreams of Bora Bora are more-a or less
Of wahinis in little grassy dresses
With long black flowing tresses
That the sun daily kisses and blesses
And a little grass shack
That calls me to hurry back
Back to fauna and flora and Laura
Back to my Laura on Bora Bora

Oh, I’d love to see more-a Bora Bora
And I’d sail on the fastest ship afloat
If only my Laura would write me a note
To come back and see more-a Bora Bora



Just An Island Boy (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2117)

When I was a lad Makua kane said to me
Keiki listen to what I say
What Makua kane told me I won’t forget
Til my dying day

Makua kane said Keiki you’re an island boy
You were born here by the bay
Keiki you’ll be an island boy
Til your dying day

When I seventeen I fell in love
With a mainland Kaikamahine dream
But I was reminded just in time
Of Makua kane’s words to me

Makua kane said Keiki you’re an island boy
You were born here by the bay
Keiki you’ll be an island boy
Til your dying day

As the sun comes up and then goes down
With an island Kaikamahine I’ll fall in love
We’ll settle down in old Lahaina town
And til my dying day she’ll be my dove

From now til then I’m an island boy
Makua kane told me I’ll be that way
I’ll be glad to be just an island boy
Til my dying day



Back On The Isle Again (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2118)

Well, it took some design to ease my mind
And I got a whole better attitude
I soaked up some sun of the island kind
Hawaii’s in a whole better latitude
There were lovers strolling hand in hand
Building their dreams in the island sand
Like you and I did before the teardrops came
And just when I had a brand new plan
You were back on the isle again

Back on the isle livin’ in style
My poor broken heart will never mend
And just when I had a brand new plan
You were back on the isle again

I was already outta my slump
Away from the times when you played your trump
Met another wahini here by the sea
Says she likes the island and she likes me
But when the stars come out on a moonlit night
The feelin’ in my heart just isn’t right
Looks like I’m back to where I first began
And just when I had a brand new plan
You were back on the isle again

Back on the isle livin’ in style
My poor broken heart will never mend
And just when I had a brand new plan
You were back on the isle again



Melody Of Old Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2119)

There’s an old Hawaiian melody
That forever seems to follow me
An island mele often told
Of island love that’s never old

I can smell the fragrance
Of tuberoses and flower leis
In the melody of old Hawaii

Shining rainbows cast their glance
Amid warm shower days
Beauty was free in old Hawaii

I see a yellow moon
Smiling at the stars
And I hear an island tune
With soft steel guitars

Tradewinds sigh through tall palm trees
It’s like heaven to me
A melody of old Hawaii

I see a yellow moon
Smiling at the stars
And I hear an island tune
With soft steel guitars

Tradewinds sigh through tall palm trees
It’s like heaven to me
A melody of old Hawaii



Blow Tradewind Blow (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2120)

The tradewind blows
It blows over the sea
Where the tradewind blows
Are islands calling me
Blow tradewind blow
Let your breeze blow on down
Take me where life is slow
To old Lahaina town

All I wanted
Was some sand and sea
By a peaceful bay
In Hawaii
Blow tradewind blow
Let your breeze blow on down
Take me where life is slow
To old Lahaina town

Blow tradewind blow
Let your breeze blow on down
Take me where life is slow
To old Lahaina town

The tradewind blows
It blows over the sea
Where the tradewind blows
Are islands calling me
Blow tradewind blow
Let your breeze blow on down
Take me where life is slow
To old Lahaina town



Beautiful Isle Of Love (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2121)

Beautiful isle of love
Isle of mystery
Beautiful isle of love
Look what you’ve done to me
I was satisfied until you came along
Now my heart’s tied to your beautiful song

Beautiful isle of love
I’m lost in your paradise
Searching for dreams in disguise
Reaching for shangri-la from the blue
Beautiful isle of love
Can you make my dreams come true

Beautiful isle of love
Look what you’ve done to me
I was satisfied until you came along
Now my heart’s tied to your beautiful song
Reaching for shangri-la from the blue
Beautiful isle of love
Can you make my dreams come true

Beautiful isle of love
Can you make my dreams come true



Lovely Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2122)

Lovely Hawaii, peaceful waters and land
Gentle are your rivers, warm is your sand
Deep verdant valleys and mountains to see
Rainbows and sunshine in blue skies for me

Lovely Hawaii, where Aloha abounds
Islands where love is always around
All of your wonders were by God’s command
Lovely Hawaii, fill my heart and hand

Aloha in this state always will thrive
Great is its beauty where love will survive

Lovely Hawaii, where Aloha abounds
Islands where love is always around
All of your wonders were by God’s command
Lovely Hawaii, fill my heart and hand



Since There Was You (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2123)

Since there was you, I have a song in my heart
Since there was you, I found a work of art
Since there was you, rainbows now shine
Beams of love from the moon say you are mine
True love is what islands impart

My dreams are filled by your arms and your kiss
I never knew paradise had such charms as this
Since there was you, I now wear a smile
Here on the isle
Since there was you

Since there was you, rainbows now shine
Beams of love from the moon say you are mine

My dreams are filled by your arms and your kiss
I never knew paradise had such charms as this
Since there was you, I now wear a smile
Here on the isle
Since there was you



Ala Moana Park (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2124)

I remember island days
After a tropical rain
When the air was steamy and warm
And smelled sweet as sugar cane

I remember when the tradewind blew your hair
And caressed your face so fair
That was our world
Our island world
And we would stroll under tropic stars
As twilight faded to dark
In Ala Moana park

I remember lazy days and balmy tropic nights
Laughing at little things that made no sense
Kisses under the tiki torch lights
My heart had no defence

I remember when the tradewind blew your hair
And caressed your face so fair
That was our world
Our island world
And we would stroll under tropic stars
As twilight faded to dark
In Ala Moana park



When The Next Island Calls (Larry W. Jones 10/25/2003) (song#2125)

Leaving will bring you emptiness
But I hope you find your happiness
You think it’s best, and it may be, I guess
But if all you find is a broken heart
Remember this island where we made love start
And I’ll be there, when the next island calls

If this is really what you want to do
May it bring happiness to you
But if a new love makes you cry
Remember me if your tears won’t dry
My true love will never make you blue
And I’ll be there, when the next island calls

You can depend on me to be by your side
I’ll raise your dreams on the rising tide

If this is really what you want to do
May it bring happiness to you
But if a new love makes you cry
Remember me if your tears won’t dry
My true love will never make you blue
And I’ll be there, when the next island calls



Beyond The Horizon (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2003) (song#2126)

Beyond the horizon
Nestled in the southern sea
There’s an island in Polynesia
They call O’tahiti

Ia orana e O’tahiti
Hello, welcome to my humble abode
Beyond the horizon
Love is the unwritten code

When you hear O’tahiti island call
You must go to the southern sea
Beyond the horizon
O’tahiti calls to me

The tradewind breeze
The sheltering tall palm trees
It’s not a dream in the air
It’s really beyond compare

Beyond the horizon
Nestled in the southern sea
There’s an island in Polynesia
They call O’tahiti

When you hear O’tahiti island call
You must go to the southern sea
Beyond the horizon
O’tahiti calls to me



Brown Eyes (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2003) (song#2127)

On the island shore I left her
Brown eyes singing a sad refrain
We said Aloha ‘oe and parted
Never to meet this way again

The month it was September
The time had come it was plain
And today I still remember
Brown eyes singing a sad refrain

Maybe someday we’ll find an island
Where we’ll stroll the sand again
And I won’t have to see the heartbreak
Brown eyes singing a sad refrain

The month it was September
The time had come it was plain
And today I still remember
Brown eyes singing a sad refrain

Maybe someday we’ll find an island
Where we’ll stroll the sand again
And I won’t have to see the heartbreak
Brown eyes singing a sad refrain



Blue Blue Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2003) (song#2128)

You left me for the lights of a mainland town
An island boy lost in a mainland world
Just remember there when you’re feelin’ down
In old Lahaina town the moon shines through
On your blue blue island girl

I still adore you though the shore’s without you
How bright is the moon there in your world
Some lonely day when the island calls you
Remember I’ll be here with arms unfurled
Come on home to your blue blue island girl

Don’t hesitate to accumulate a lot of gold
I don’t need a fancy dress or big fine pearls
All I need are two loving arms to hold
And a true love for your blue blue island girl
And a true love for your blue blue island girl

Some lonely day when the island calls you
Remember I’ll be here with arms unfurled
Come on home to your blue blue island girl
All I need are two loving arms to hold
And a true love for your blue blue island girl
A true love for your blue blue island girl



Blue Island Blue (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2003) (song#2129)

Blue island blue, color of my heartache
Blue island blue, a tear is coming through
Blue island blue, color of my heartache
My world, since you left, is empty too

I stroll along the sand where we used to talk
Hand in hand, I see lovers walk
As they’re strolling by, my heart cries
Cause you left me lonely by the sea
Palm trees wave in the air
But I don’t care
My island’s blue as it can be

Blue island blue, color of my heartache
Blue island blue, a tear is coming through
Blue island blue, color of my heartache
My world, since you left, is empty too

Every night I see you in my dreams
Love coming like a flooding tide
You’re arms are open wide, it seems
Then I can’t hold these tears inside
The ebbing tide flows past the reef
And my heart can’t hide its grief
My island’s blue as it can be

Blue island blue, color of my heartache
Blue island blue, a tear is coming through
Blue island blue, color of my heartache
My world, since you left, is empty too



Serenade Of Love (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2003) (song#2130)

Where the tropic moon was shining
Beams of love with all its charms
My heart on love was dining
When I held you in my arms

I see the ginger blossoms yonder
In my mind when I’m not there
Sweet mem’ries daily wander
Back to the one for whom I care

Every dream that I now dream of
Is of a love that’s in the past
Every day that I now live for
Is to love you til the last

I see the ginger blossoms yonder
In my mind when I’m not there
Sweet mem’ries daily wander
Back to the one for whom I care

Where the winds of trade are blowing
They still whisper of your charms
A serenade of love keeps flowing
Through my dreams and empty arms



Bring Me Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2003) (song#2131)

When you smile you bring the sun
On the isle you’re lots of fun
In this ocean where we live
Love and deep devotion’s what we give
As we stroll here by the bay, I say
Just bring me sunshine every day

Make me happy as years go by
Don’t bring me tears in paradise
Just as the sun shines on the sea
I trust you’ll be mine eternally
Come what might or come what may
Just bring me sunshine every day

When you smile you bring the sun
On the isle you’re lots of fun
In this ocean where we live
Love and deep devotion’s what we give
As we stroll here by the bay, I say
Just bring me sunshine every day

Just as the sun shines on the sea
I trust you’ll be mine eternally
Come what might or come what may
Just bring me sunshine every day

In this ocean where we live
Love and deep devotion’s what we give
As we stroll here by the bay, I say
Just bring me sunshine every day



Honolulu Seaside Melody (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2003) (song#2132)

There may be tears on Broadway come tomorrow
A smile that’s flawed may hide much sorrow
But there’s an isle that’s always smiling
And a place that’s known for beguiling

Don’t bring a tear to Honolulu
You’ve got to cheer in Honolulu
Troubles and pain are not in style there
Bubbles of champagne and lots of smiles there
Honolulu lights never go out there
A million hearts in love will sprout there
There’s no tears to hide in Hawaii
It’s a Honolulu seaside melody

Troubles and pain are not in style there
Bubbles of champagne and lots of smiles there
Honolulu lights never go out there
A million hearts in love will sprout there
There’s no tears to hide in Hawaii
It’s a Honolulu seaside melody

Honolulu seaside mealody



Just A Strollin’ Around (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2003) (song#2133)

I got a Panama hat
Got a girl on my shoulder
My heart she has pleased
She holds all the keys
Just a strollin’ around

Got no fences to mend
Island weather’s not cold
Everybody’s a friend
It’s paradise to behold
Just a strollin’ around

If ever blues begin
To followin’ me (begin followin’ me)
I grab my Panama hat, my ol’ straw mat
Stroll the sand again
It’s free

I hear Maui chimes
Every where that I’m goin’
The isle is a breeze
Under palm trees
Just a strollin’ around

Instrumental

Stroll the sand again
It’s free

I hear Maui chimes
Every where that I’m goin’
The isle is a breeze
Under palm trees
Just a strollin’ around

Just a strollin’ around
Just a strollin’ around
Just a strollin’ around



Back To Old Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2003) (song#2134)

Strolling in the sand, hand in hand
Island life back then was really grand
We had fun under sunny summer skies
And it was, Hawaiian shaved ice, poi and rice
Eatin’ cheeseburgers in paradise
Falling in love under stars above
At the wiki wacky hula show
And it was, Hawaiian shaved ice, poi and rice
Eatin’ cheeseburgers in paradise
On the isle where breezes blow

Years have come and gone since we sang island songs
And it seems our dreams have faded from before
Places where we used to play, loving words we used to say
Oh, how I wish for island days of yore, when we were…

Strolling in the sand, hand in hand
Island life back then was grand
We had fun under sunny summer skies
And it was, Hawaiian shaved ice, poi and rice
Eatin’ cheeseburgers in paradise
Falling in love under stars above
At the wiki wacky hula show
And it was, Hawaiian shaved ice, poi and rice
Eatin’ cheeseburgers in paradise
On the isle where breezes blow

The more things change, the more they stay the same
You’re still you and I’m still me
We still dream of that old island flame
Why don’t we go back to old Hawaii, where we were…

Strolling in the sand, hand in hand
Island life back then was grand
We had fun under sunny summer skies
And it was, Hawaiian shaved ice, poi and rice
Eatin’ cheeseburgers in paradise
Falling in love under stars above
At the wiki wacky hula show
And it was, Hawaiian shaved ice, poi and rice
Eatin’ cheeseburgers in paradise
On the isle where breezes blow



So Beautiful (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2135)

An island is a funny little thing
Palm trees and sand where bluebirds sing
It’s a good thing, never bad
And it’s beautiful

Island love is a funny little thing
You go island hopping for a wedding ring
It’s a good thing, never bad
And it’s beautiful

Beautiful is an island romance
You’re set to fall when Hawaii calls
Think I might just take a chance
And I don’t think she would mind at all

Island love is a funny little thing, they say
You giggle and laugh down beside the bay
It can heal a heartache any day
And it’s beautiful

And I know if you’d just be my love
The island would have two new turtle doves
Our love on the tradewinds would surely flow
And it would be so beautiful, I know

It would be so beautiful, I know



Aloha Hello Bluebird (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (SONG#2136)

Cast away my worries and all of my woe
Goin’ where the tradewinds blow
Whispering low, Aloha hello bluebird
Somebody there is waitin’ for me
Sugar cane’s sweet and so is she
Aloha hello bluebird

This old mainland has finally gotten to me
When I speak Hawaiian they don’t understand me
Set the sails, never mind the gales
Baby, our island’s almost in sight
Bluebird Aloha hello

Cast away my worries and all of my woe
Goin’ where the tradewinds blow
Whispering low, Aloha hello bluebird
Somebody there is waitin’ for me
Sugar cane’s sweet and so is she
Aloha hello bluebird

This old mainland has finally gotten to me
When I speak Hawaiian they don’t understand me
Set the sails, never mind the gales
Baby, our island’s almost in sight
Bluebird Aloha hello



Paradise Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2137)

Aloha ‘oe little baby, night is nigh
The tropic moon is in the sky
The tuberoses have closed their eyes
Tradewinds whisper lullabies
Aloha ‘oe little baby in paradise

Aloha ‘oe little baby, go to sleep
Stars in the heavens will want to peep
The tropic moon is in the sky
Birds of paradise go flying by
Tradewinds whisper lullabies
Aloha ‘oe little baby in paradise

Aloha ‘oe little baby, have no fear
Your mama’s rocking her baby dear
Aloha ‘oe little baby, go to sleep
Stars in the heavens will want to peep
Tradewinds whisper lullabies
Aloha ‘oe little baby in paradise
Aloha ‘oe, little baby go to sleep



My Rose Of Hanalei (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2138)

On Kauai isle there lies a melody
A song of old Hanalei
Where dreams come true for lovers too
Beside the gentle peaceful bay

Tropic air flows o’er old Hanalei
All arranged under stars up above
That moonlit bay where soft breezes blow
Is where I lost my island love

Moon, will you please send her, here to my arms
My island rose, rose of Hanalei
Ask her to surrender, with all your charms
Speak once again to my love today

Token words, empty song today
Still lives in my dreams of Hanalei
For that moonlit bay where soft breezes blow
And rose, my rose of Hanalei

Moon, will you please send her, here to my arms
My island rose, rose of Hanalei
Ask her to surrender, with all your charms
Speak once again to my love today

Token words, empty song today
Still lives in my dreams of Hanalei
For that moonlit bay where soft breezes blow
And rose, my rose of Hanalei



Dark Sand (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2139)

Dark sand, seems so out of style
Since you left me here on the isle
It looks remarkable here in my hand
This dark, dark island sand

Dark sea, seems so lonely to me
Since you wanted to be free
Has love died eternally in…
This dark, dark lonely sea

But if you’ll remember
That moonlight on the isle
Maybe there’ll be an ember
To light our love awhile

But now there’ll be dark days
When I hear sweet Maui chimes
I’ll wear for you dark blue leis
Until you return to be mine

But if you’ll remember
That moonlight on the isle
Maybe there’ll be an ember
To light our love awhile

But now there’ll be dark days
When I hear sweet Maui chimes
I’ll wear for you dark blue leis
Until you return to be mine



Shame On You Island Moon (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2140)

Island moon, there in paradise
You shined your beams from tropic skies
And you took my love away last June
Shame, oh shame on you, island moon

Someday you’ll miss your island man
You’ll reminisce about our plans
You’ll stroll the sand empty handedly
You let the island moon take you from me

Island moon, there in paradise
You shined your beams from tropic skies
And you took my love away last June
Shame, oh shame on you, island moon

When your dream fades, night will come along
And you will hear this mournful island song
You and I will stroll the sand empty handedly
Cause the island moon separated you from me

Island moon, there in paradise
You shined your beams from tropic skies
And you took my love away last June
Shame, oh shame on you, island moon



Hawaii Here I Come (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2141)

When Santa Anna winds are blowin’
California fires keep on a-growin’
So, to the west I’ll turn my eyes
Back to my island paradise
Hawaii, I’ve been so blue
And I sure am missin’ you
I can’t wait to set a date
Can’t do no more stallin’
Cause I hear those islands callin’

So, Hawaii, here I come
Back to where I started from
I can smell the flowers in the leis
See the fish jump in the bays
A polynesian maid said come on back
Gonna return to that little grass shack
The Lurline is sailin’ with a smokin’ stack
So, Hawaii, here I come

If you island boys want to ramble
Take my advice, it’s just a gamble
Absence will make your heart grow fonder
It might even break the more you wander
When you’ve walked this mainland for awhile
You’ll want to stroll the sand back on the isle
That’s why I’m gonna sail today
The Lurline is about to get under way

So, Hawaii, here I come
Back to where I started from
I can smell the flowers in the leis
See the fish jump in the bays
A polynesian maid said come on back
Gonna return to that little grass shack
The Lurline is sailin’ with a smokin’ stack
So, Hawaii, here I come



Warm Hawaiian Nights (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2142)

Together in the sand
Let’s stroll the shore together hand in hand
Like birds of a feather, my heart with yours now flies
We’ll count the stars together, together in paradise

Love these warm Hawaiian nights
When we’re strolling the shore together hand in hand
Oh, I love these warm Hawaiian nights
At Waikiki, watching the moon and the tiki lights

Here you and I are beneath a golden moon above
Steel guitars seem to know how soon comes love
The tiki lights flicker warmly on the sand
And all earth’s delights I now hold in my hand

Warm Hawaiian nights
The tropic breeze is here to please while love begins
I might say dear, the peaceful seas have island violins
Music of love while strolling in island sand with you

Here you and I are beneath a golden moon above
Steel guitars seem to know how soon comes love
The tiki lights flicker warmly on the sand
And all earth’s delights I now hold in my hand

Warm Hawaiian nights
The tropic breeze is here to please while love begins
I might say dear, the peaceful seas have island violins
Music of love while strolling in island sand with you



Ku’u Ipo Mau Loa (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2143)

Call her ku’u ipo mau loa
If she’s feeling blue
You’re my sweetheart forever
And I love you
And if you ever think of strolling away from her
Remember that sometimes
She might feel the same about you, sir

Share all your down times
As well as your good times too
Call her ku’u ipo mau loa
If she means the world to you
You’re my sweetheart forever
More precious than gold
Ku’u ipo mau loa
She’s your island treasure to hold

Share all your down times
As well as your good times too
Call her ku’u ipo mau loa
If she means the world to you
You’re my sweetheart forever
More precious than gold
Ku’u ipo mau loa
She’s your island treasure to hold



The Tradewind (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2144)

Well, they call me the tradewind
I keep blowin’ out to sea
Yeah, they call me the tradewind
Cause I keep blowin’ out to sea
I ain’t got no lover
No lover’s got a hold on me

Well, there’s a change in the weather
But the tradewind still blows free
Yeah, there’s a change in the weather
But the tradewind still blows free
I ain’t got no rudder
No rudder’s gonna be steerin’ me

Well, I got the rambles, baby
Gotta be ramblin’ on
Yeah, I got the rambles, baby
Gotta be ramblin’ on
I might blow on to old Hong Kong
Find me an island home
Find me a tropic zone



Feel The Love (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2003) (song#2145)

There’s a peaceful feeling on the isle
At the end of day
Feel the coolness of the breeze
As it flows off the bay
Moments of enchantment
Refresh my mind like morning dew
This island man knows what a find
What a find there is in loving you
And I can feel the love on the isle tonight
It’s here with you and me

This island man knows his guiding star
It’s the love that’s brought us both this far
And I can feel the love on the isle tonight
Feel the quiet and the peacefulness
Times like this makes the world feel right
It’s an isle of happiness

How would it be if everyone could learn
That the way to live is to love in turn
That’s the way it ought to be with things divine
The way the heart of this island man
Beats in time with yours and yours with mine
And I can feel the love on the isle tonight



Across The Pacific Ocean (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2003) (song#2146)

 

Oh, the waves are high and the pay is low
Leilani, where’s your island
Hawaiian isles are my dear home
Across the Pacific ocean

The isle of paradise I’ll see
Leilani, where’s your island
I’ll sail across the raging sea
To find my rose, Leilani

To old Lahaina town I’ll go down
Leilani, where’s your island
I know where it is that she’ll be found
Across the Pacific ocean

There’s salty Sam with his can of Spam
Leilani, where’s your island
There’s local motion with no devotion
Across the Pacific ocean

Look out for whaling ships, I say
Leilani, where’s your island
Salty Sam will steal your heart away
Across the Pacific ocean

Oh, the waves are high and the pay is low
Leilani, where’s your island
Hawaiian isles are my dear home
Across the Pacific ocean

My Leilani’s across the Pacific ocean



The Sailor Lad (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2003) (song#2147)

 

Billowed were the flying sails
Over the raging sea
Steering through the windward gales
Island bound to Hawaii
Homeward bound was the good ship’s bow
Sound and sturdy was her keel
A happy song sang the sailor lad
Standing before the mast and wheel

Another day in the salty spray
Another wide ocean to roam
Soon the compass will point the way
To his paradise island home
Bright were the diamonds on the waves
Shining in the tropic sun
Soft was the light that the moon now gave
The sail of the gallant ship was almost done

The lightning flashed so suddenly
The sails were torn in strips
The thunder crashed incessantly
There was woe for the gallant ship
And when the storm had passed the reef
The wreck was hardly seen
And the stars of heaven stared in grief
At the end of the sailor’s dream

Billowed were the flying sails
Over the raging sea
Steering through the windward gales
Island bound to Hawaii
Homeward bound was the good ship’s bow
Sound and sturdy was her keel
A happy song sang the sailor lad
Standing before the mast and wheel



Island Blues (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2003) (song#2148)

 

You turned my paradise upside down
Guess I’ll stroll down to old Lahaina town
Somewhere on old Papelekane avenue
But my arms will still be missing you

Can’t seem to shake these island blues
Shattered are my dreams of you
Gonna paint old Maui blue
Because of you

Saw an island girl where breezes blow
Even took her to a luau show
Couldn’t even smile at hula sways
Since you’re gone blue Hawaii is colored gray

Can’t seem to shake these island blues
Shattered are my dreams of you
Gonna paint old Maui blue
Because of you

I’ll find a new love by the sea
In two thousand years or maybe three
Cause dreams of you I can’t erase
And no one else could take your place

Can’t seem to shake these island blues
Shattered are my dreams of you
Gonna paint old Maui blue
Because of you

I can’t seem to shake these island blues
Shattered are my dreams of you
Gonna paint old Maui blue
While I’m still loving you



My Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2003) (song#2149)

 

Sparkling are the waters of my blue Hawaii
Bringing tranquility from a peaceful sea
Lovely are the waters of my blue Hawaii
Makes me forget about my troubles and be free

A golden chain of islands like a necklace in the blue
And love that’s on tradewinds will be calling you

Those breezes that kiss Hawaii
Are like the warmth of ohana that I miss so
And the golden sands of my Hawaii
Are timeless in the love it has to show

Paradise is here on earth on mountains anchored in the sea
It’s a place of love and laughter and island harmony

On the shores of my Hawaii I find a truth that I make mine
There is God-like beauty in His creation for all time
On my Hawaii I smell flowers for garlands of scented leis
And my heart is always grateful for the waters of the bays

These beautiful islands of Hawaii
Are places where I’ll always call my home
And back to the arms of my Hawaii
I’ll return if ever I should roam

Old Polynesia has changed but some things stay the same
Ohana love has been arranged and it’s not just in name

On the shores of my Hawaii I find a truth that I make mine
There is God-like beauty in His creation for all time
On my Hawaii I smell flowers for garlands of scented leis
And my heart is always grateful for the waters of the bays

My Hawaii



Bumpity Beat Heart (Larry W. Jones 10/28/2003) (song#2150)

 

Every time I see your lovely hula sway
My heart thumps with a bumpity beat
Strolling in the sand down by the bay
My heart thumps with a bumpity beat

When you’re strolling real close to me
I’m surfin’ on the waves of a rolling sea
My heart thumps with a bumpity beat
Cause you’re the island girl I love

And pretty soon wine that’s tasting just right
Are two sweet lips that mine will greet
When the moon is shining down its lovely light
My heart thumps with a bumpity beat

The month of June will bring those Maui chimes
My heart will thump with a bumpity beat
Paradise will ring the wedding bell on time
That’s when the moon will know you’re mine

And pretty soon wine that’s tasting just right
Are two sweet lips that mine will greet
When the moon is shining down its lovely light
My heart thumps with a bumpity beat

My heart thumps with a bumpity beat
My heart thumps with a bumpity beat
My heart thumps with a bumpity beat



Tonga Moon (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2003) (song#2151)

 

Keep shining on, Tonga moon
Keep shining beams of love so heavenly
I’m pining for you, Tonga moon
Dreaming of her island in the sea
I’ll see her soon, Tonga moon

Oh Tonga moon, shine on her cottage on the sand
Shed your light, your beams of soft delight
So she’ll understand
That I’m blue and I’ll see her soon
Keep shining on, Tonga moon

Keep shining beams of love so heavenly
I’m pining for you, Tonga moon

Oh Tonga moon, shine on her cottage on the sand
Shed your light, your beams of soft delight
So she’ll understand
That I’m blue and I’ll see her soon
Keep shining on, Tonga moon



Art Deco Gecko (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2003) (song#2152)

There’s a tropical island that I know
Where all vacationing geckos go
The moon is a mango and they dance the tango
And the gecko’s a friend of mine

He’s mostly nocturnal, insectivorous
But he’s eternally art deco decorous
And he likes to be on hand
To dance the tango to an island band

He’s a tropical art deco gecko
He does the tango by the sea
Art deco gecko
A lizard in a mango tree

The dolphins and the guppies
See him stroll where tradewinds blow
He’s an art deco gecko yuppie
Doin’ the tango stroll

Sometimes he strolls on Maui
Sometimes at Waikiki
His tango stole a lot of wowie
On the tropical scene

Sometimes he swims in the tropical water
But mostly he just strolls the sand
And anytime he likes to tango
To a tropical island band

He’s a tropical art decko gecko
He does the tango by the sea
Art deco gecko
A lizard in a mango tree



Chain Of Dreams Of You (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2003) (song#2153)

 

Even though we’re so far apart, dear
I still remember our love where breezes blew
On an island where it all started
And I’m chained to this chain of dreams of you

If the sun didn’t rise tomorrow, it would be OK
You strolled away and left me alone and blue
But no one will ever know my sorrow here to stay
While I’m chained to this chain of dreams of you

Maybe the waves will break the links you gave, dear
And wash away the pain of missing you
But I’ll never be on the brink of love again, dear
While I’m chained to this chain of dreams of you

If the sun didn’t rise tomorrow, it would be OK
You strolled away and left me alone and blue
But no one will ever know my sorrow here to stay
While I’m chained to this chain of dreams of you



Buy The Moon (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2003) (song#2154)

 

If I could buy the moon
And bring it down to you
Sing you an island tune
And make a dream come true
Then this love I have inside
Would reside on golden beams
But now I’m waiting for high tide
To float ashore my dreams of you

If I could buy the moon
I could change this lonely world
You would be my bride in June
You would be my island girl

And if I could be your island man
Where soft breezes play
You could be my queen in island sand
In a cottage by the bay
And our island love would last
Until the end of time
But until it comes to pass
I will dream that you are mine

If I could buy the moon
I could change this lonely world
You would be my bride in June
You would be my island girl

If I could buy the moon
I could change this lonely world
You would be my bride in June
Baby, if I could buy the moon
Baby, if I could buy the moon
Baby, if I could buy the moon



Tropical Heaven (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2155)

 

Heaven, I’m in tropical heaven
And my heart beats to beat the band
As we stroll where breezes kiss the sand
When we stroll together hand in hand
Heaven, I’m in tropical heaven
And the moon in old Lahaina town hung around
With a tune of love that was found to be grand
When we were strolling, strolling hand in hand

Oh, I could climb Mauna Kea
And tell the world of our plans
And my heart beats to beat the band
When we stroll together hand in hand
Oh, I could really have a ball
And hire an island band
To play a song of love’s command
When we stroll together hand in hand

Come on and stroll with me
Make my dreams come true
With you and me here by the sea
It will be a paradise for two
Heaven, I’m in tropical heaven
And my heart beats to beat the band
As we stroll where breezes kiss the sand
When we stroll together hand in hand



Sailor Man (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2156)

 

Sailor man, sailor man where will you sail tonight
Sailor man, lonely man, will your heart ever see the light
Dream sailor man of your far away island love
Sail along, sailor man like the wind filled sails above

Where the waves control the decks that roll
The ocean has been your lonely home
When will you fold your sails to stroll
On an island to call your home

Sail along, sailor man, to the next port in the stream
Sailin’ on, sailor man, don’t forget to fulfill your dream

Where the waves control the decks that roll
The ocean has been your lonely home
When will you fold your sails to stroll
On an island to call your home

And when you anchor down
Will it be in old Lahaina town, sailor man
Sailor man
And when you anchor down
Will it be in old Lahaina town, sailor man



Stroll Every Island (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2157)

 

Stroll every island
Look low and high
Follow every dream
Til you find paradise

Stroll every island
That’s anchored in the stream
Follow love’s command
Til you find a dream

On an island you will find
A love to make your own
Take time to unwind
In an island tropic zone

Stroll every island
That’s anchored in the stream
Follow love’s command
Til you find a dream

On an island you will find
A love to make your own
Take time to unwind
In an island tropic zone

Stroll every island
That’s anchored in the stream
Follow love’s command
Til you find a dream



Sunset In Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2158)

 

Sunset in Hawaii, twilight was just falling
Sunset in Hawaii, a dream was coming true
I could hear the tradewinds calling
The sunset in Hawaii, and calling me to you

Sunset in Hawaii, it was so enthralling
Sunset in Hawaii, my, how the hours flew
I could feel love’s sweet emotion calling
As I fell in love with you

And every time I bring to mind
The love that sunset in Hawaii bore
I always find the ties that bind
Is your love I found on Hawaii’s shore

For under palm trees swaying, without saying
The words I’d rehearsed before
Your kiss told me that love was staying
Then you said forever, I’m yours

Sunset in Hawaii, it was so enthralling
Sunset in Hawaii, my, how the hours flew
I could feel love’s sweet emotion calling
As I fell in love with you

For under palm trees swaying, without saying
The words I’d rehearsed before
Your kiss told me that love was staying
Then you said forever, I’m yours



A June Night And You (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2159)

A June night belongs to moonlight
And moonlight belongs, dear
To a chance for island romance
For heavenly charms, you in my arms
On this isle of dreams
Where dreams come true

Let’s stroll a little slower
See the moonlight in your eyes
They’re playing the music lower
While we stroll in paradise

Cover me with your kisses
I don’t need to ask what this is
Your kiss that’s sweet as wine
Makes a June night so divine

Let’s stroll a little slower
And I’m sure you will hear
My heart beating like a canoe rower
Knowing his goal is near

Sweetheart it’s you I adore
Like a timeless island tune
And the only things I want more are
A June night and you



Mine Come The Morrow (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2160)

If the bird of paradise
Could replace my words forlorn
Then the lovelight of my eyes
Would hear a new song that was born

And the island would ring clear
With the gladdest song of the year
Not the saddest song of sorrow
And you’d be mine come the morrow

If the song of the bluebird
Could lift up a note or two
Then my love, it would be heard
E ke Aloha, I love you

And the island would ring clear
With the gladdest song of the year
Not the saddest song of sorrow
And you’d be mine come the morrow

If the bird of paradise
Could replace my words forlorn
Then the lovelight of my eyes
Would hear a new song that was born

And the island would ring clear
With the gladdest song of the year
Not the saddest song of sorrow
And you’d be mine come the morrow
And you’d be mine come the morrow



This Romance (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2161)

I’ll never forget the hula trees swaying
When we first danced in Hawaii blue
The island band and steel guitars playing
And we found a love so true

This romance will last the rest of our lives
And you’ll fill my dreams every night
When we dance together, it’s such a delight
This romance will last the rest of our lives

I’ll never forget those island moments
When we danced there by the sea
It must have been the weather, soft as a feather
The tradewinds brought love to me

This romance will last the rest of our lives
And you’ll fill my dreams every night
When we dance together, it’s such a delight
This romance will last the rest of our lives

This romance will last the rest of our lives
And you’ll fill my dreams every night
When we dance together, it’s such a delight
This romance will last the rest of our lives



Little Island Boy (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2162)

Maybe you’ve heard talk stories
Of a little island boy
He’s always happy eatin’ his fish and poi
And the only things he’s always dreamin’ of
Is the tropic moon above
Stars that guide above
And the island girl he loves

That’s the only things he’s always dreamin’ of
Now who’s this talk story talkin’ about
Can’t you see
That little island boy, is me

Maybe you’ve heard talk stories
Of a little island boy
He’s always happy eatin’ his fish and poi
And the only things he’s always dreamin’ of
Is the tropic moon above
Stars that guide above
And the island girl he loves

That’s the only things he’s always dreamin’ of
Now who’s this talk story talkin’ about
Can’t you see
That little island boy, is me



Foolish Island Love (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2163)

Foolish island love
It’s just foolish island love
Where tradewinds blow, I love you so
But I know it’s a foolish
Foolish island love

Foolish island love
It’s just foolish island love
This love can’t be true, even in Hawaii blue
Oh, foolish island love

Nothing’s going right in tropic isles of love
Who can set me free from this foolish island love

I don’t know why my heart can’t see
Just what my heart is doin’ to me
That island girl upset it right from the start
With this foolish island love

Nothing’s going right in tropic isles of love
Who can set me free from this foolish island love

Foolish island love
It’s just foolish island love
This love can’t be true, even in Hawaii blue
Oh, foolish island love



Lazy Day (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2164)

Paddlin’ on the bay
On a sunny island afternoon
With the girl I love
What a lazy day
Waitin’ for the tropic moon

The steel guitar band’s a-playin’
A lovely island tune
Paddlin’ on the bay
What a lazy day
On a sunny island afternoon

Birds of paradise, all sound so nice
A cheerful island song
The tradewind breeze, life of ease
Helps me paddle along

Paddlin’ on the bay
Talkin’ ’bout our honeymoon
What a lazy day
Waitin’ for the tropic moon
On a sunny island afternoon



Big Mainland (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2165)

Big mainland, you called me
Big mainland, you made me crawl
Other folks might hate to say goodbye
But your yoke and weight just made me sigh
Big mainland, you’re not my paradise

I still have that song in my heart
That melody of peaceful island times
Big mainland has no love to impart
I’m cryin’ for my Maui island chimes

I still see that valley isle
Where island life is so sublime
Big mainland has nothing for which to smile
I’m cryin’ for my Maui island chimes

I can only cry and wonder why
I’ve never seen a rainbow here
No birds of paradise on the fly
Nobody cares if you disappear

I still see that island girl
Over where the moonlight shines
Big mainland has no waves that curl
I’m cryin’ for my Maui island chimes

Big mainland, you called me
Big mainland, you made me crawl
You said I’d never have to groan
You said I’d never miss my tropic zone
Big mainland you know I’m goin’ home

I still see that island girl
Over where the moonlight shines
Big mainland has no waves that curl
I’m cryin’ for my Maui island chimes

Over where the moonlight shines
I’m cryin’ for my Maui island chimes



Loving You In Vain (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2166)

 

Darling, you will never see
That my heart will be broken endlessly
As the ebbing tide I’ll be low and hide
But tied to this anchor chain
I’ll go on loving you in vain

I’ll wait here in paradise
Even though I know it isn’t wise
Darling, you will never see
The hurt that’s in this island domain
I’ll go on loving you in vain

Twilight is falling from the sky
I cry as I see you strolling by
Hand in hand with some other guy
This night will be so very long
And this heart of mine is asking what went wrong

Tomorrow my crying will be done
I’ll put on a smile and stroll out in the sun
But then another night will come to shun
Darling, you will never see
That losing you has brought only pain
I’ll go on loving you in vain

I’ll go on loving you in vain



Tiki Torches Flame (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2003) (song#2167)

 

Oh, the tiki torches shine so bright on your Waikiki home
The marble in the entry way matches all the chrome
But the time will come when you need someone
To help you ease your shame
When the storms of love blow out your torches flame

I guess I always knew I didn’t stand a chance with you
Here by the sea it was unlikely that I ever would
And sure enough love was in the rough from the start
So you strolled away and left me with this broken heart

Oh, the tiki torches shine so bright on your Waikiki home
The marble in the entry way matches all the chrome
But the time will come when you need someone
To help you ease your shame
When the storms of love blow out your torches flame

I guess I always knew I didn’t stand a chance with you
Here by the sea it was unlikely that I ever would
And sure enough love was in the rough from the start
So you strolled away and left me with this broken heart

Your picture is in the Honolulu Times all the time
You’re the island girl with all the island pearls today
But a photo spread won’t warm your bed, I’ve heard say
Like this love of mine that will shine for you some day

Oh, the tiki torches shine so bright on your Waikiki home
The marble in the entry way matches all the chrome
But the time will come when you need someone
To help you ease your shame
When the storms of love blow out your torches flame



Dew On The Tuberoses (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2003) (song#2168)

 

The tropic moon was softly shining
On an old Maui island home
The scent of sweet tuberoses was in the air
A lonely island girl was writing a letter
To her Maui island sweetheart all alone
I wish that I could be with you over there

There’s dew on the tuberoses tonight
It sparkles in the tropic moon’s loving light
My Maui island boy, so far across the sea
How I pray that you’ll return home here to see
Dew on the tuberoses, and me

There’s beams of gold on the island sand tonight
It glows as I hold this letter to the light
My Maui island boy, so far across the sea
How I pray that you’ll return home here to see
Beams of gold on the island sand, and me

There’s dew on the tuberoses tonight
It sparkles in the tropic moon’s loving light
My Maui island boy, so far across the sea
Close your eyes and dream for me
Dream of dew on the tuberoses, and me

Dream of dew on the tuberoses, and me



Blue Hawaiian Tango (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2003) (song#2169)

 

My sweet Leilani, my own love by the sea
Let’s dance, you and me
The Hawaiian blue tango
I long to hold you in my arms, with all your charms
As we dance again, you and me
The Hawaiian blue tango

Let me hold your hand once again
As we did in days of yore
And underneath the tropic moon
Let’s swoon across the floor
As we dance again, you and me
The Hawaiian blue tango

The Hawaiian blue tango
Underneath a tropic mango moon
The Hawaiian blue tango
It’s salsa with an island tune

My sweet Leilani, my own love by the sea
Let’s dance, you and me
The Hawaiian blue tango
I long to hold you in my arms, with all your charms
As we dance again, you and me
The Hawaiian blue tango

Let me hold your hand once again
As we did in days of yore
And underneath the tropic moon
Let’s swoon across the floor
As we dance again, you and me
The Hawaiian blue tango



Time Hasn’t Changed A Thing (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2003) (song#2170)

 

Back on the island I was in love with no other
We sang Aloha songs as we strolled along
And our hearts sang the same sweet refrain
And time hasn’t changed a thing

Then you strolled away and broke my heart of clay
Our island love was parted in the pain
Those dark days are gone but mem’ries linger on
And time hasn’t changed a thing

Time has moved along but not our island song
It’s still here in my heart for me to sing
So, I guess it’s true, I’m still missing you
And time hasn’t changed a thing

Well, there’s many things in life you can change
Some of them you simply rearrange
But love is strange how it seems to cling
And time hasn’t changed a thing

So, I wish you happiness on your island blessed
I wonder if we’ll ever meet again
One thing is still true, it’s that I love you
And time hasn’t changed a thing

No, time hasn’t changed a thing



Blue Hawaiian Heaven (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2003) (song#2171)

 

You’re the polynesian guiding star
In my blue Hawaiian heaven
You’re the one who brought paradise to me
You’re the polynesian guiding star
In my blue Hawaiian heaven
And you’re the island dream that’s guiding me

Like a guiding beacon light
You steer love’s ship through darkest nights
You came into my heart when I was lonely
You’re the polynesian guiding star
In my blue Hawaiian heaven
And you’re the island dream that’s guiding me

Like a guiding beacon light
You steer love’s ship through darkest nights
You came into my heart when I was lonely
You’re the polynesian guiding star
In my blue Hawaiian heaven
And you’re the island dream that’s guiding me



My Sweet Leilani (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2003) (song#2172)

 

My mind goes on vacation every evening
It’s an occasion to go down mem’ry lane
I stroll along that same familiar sand
Dreaming of those islands again

I can still see in my mind, my sweetheart
She still looks the same as she used to be
Waiting patiently by the rolling sea
And as I call her name she turns to me

Dark polynesian eyes and long black hair
Have you ever seen an island girl so fair
Cheeks as soft as roses, lips from a honey tree
Have you ever seen an island girl like Leilani

Often times on the island we’d go strolling
In the sand beneath the tall palm trees
I held her hand in mine, she was so divine
And now I sit alone dreaming of the breeze
And the time I spent with my sweet Leilani

Often times on the island we’d go strolling
In the sand beneath the tall palm trees
I held her hand in mine, she was so divine
And now I sit alone dreaming of the breeze
And the time I spent with my sweet Leilani



Ship Back To Maui (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2003) (song#2173)

I’ve been on this mainland much too long
Seen the big cities coast to coast
Searching for fortune and fame, an empty game
Thumbing rides beside the highway posts
These old worn out blue jeans
Holds every cent that I can call my means
So, I’m thinkin’ of an island song
And a way to slip back to that tropic zone

Put me on a ship back to Maui
I’ve had enough of mainland hangin’ round
Put me on a ship back to Maui
Wake me up back in old Lahaina town

Somebody said that home is where the poi is
And this island boy is island bound
My heart is still back home in Maui
Gotta catch that ship to old Lahaina town
I’ve been to Texas and to San Antone
But there kalua pigs and luaus are unknown
An island boy can tell when the weather’s changing
And it’s time for me to just be movin’ on

Put me on a ship back to Maui
I’ve had enough of mainland hangin’ round
Put me on a ship back to Maui
Wake me up back in old Lahaina town

Wake me up back in old Lahaina town



Livin’ On Maui Time (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2003) (song#2174)

 

Well I left Maui island
Dreamin’ of a cadillac
Need a new state of mind
I was goin’ to Las Vegas
To lose my hard earned wages
Across that California line

My mama said it’s sleazy
I said I’d take it easy
Thought I didn’t need those Maui chimes
Where tradewinds blow it ain’t so cool an
Don’t need no Maui island schoolin’
This Hawaiian cowboy walks the line

Livin’ on Maui time
Livin’ on Maui time
Well you know I think I blew it
Gonna set my watch back to it
Livin’ on Maui time

I thought that I was singin’ good
Guess I was just misunderstood
Hawaiian music sounded so fine
But they don’t think it’s all that groovy
And nobody sings my songs
Guess I’m just misplaced in time

So much for all this dreamin’
Lyin’, cheatin’, schemin’
So I’ve done my last bash this time
Well, my business now is leavin’
Back to where there ain’t no grievin’
So I’ll just go on back to Maui time

Livin’ on Maui time
Livin’ on Maui time
Well you know I think I blew it
Gonna set my watch back to it
Livin’ on Maui time

Livin’ on Maui time
Livin’ on Maui time
Well you know I think I blew it
Gonna set my watch back to it
Livin’ on Maui time



Ku’u Lei Nani Gardenia (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2003) (song#2175)

 

Hear now my mele, how I esteem my
Beautiful lei of the gardenia
Ku`u lei nani gardenia
My beautiful garland of love

I am beckoned to her saying
Let us treasure one another
Ku`u lei nani gardenia
No other shall be my love

The air is sweetly perfumed
On this, our lovely island home
In my heart there’s so much room
For Ku`u lei nani gardenia
My beautiful garland of love

You are steadfast in my thoughts
That unsettle and arouse me
Ku`u lei nani gardenia
You are my beautiful garland of love

Ha`ina mai ka puana la
Let the refrain be told
Of ku’u lei nani gardenia
My beautiful garland of love



A Bloom With Perfume (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2003) (song#2176)

 

He remembers the first time he met her
And the first words of love that she said
He remembers the first time he held her
And the day when his love and he were wed

It was on this same island
They both were so young and strong
Love in their home was never left undone
And that’s the reason why he wrote this song

I’ll give you a bloom with perfume, dear
I’ll give you a bloom with perfume
I’ll love you til the tropic stars disappear
And in the sky no longer shines the moon

They would stroll in the sand in the evening
And for years it was paradise
Their love was like the tuberoses in the spring
And all the beauty was seen in her eyes

I’ll give you a bloom with perfume, dear
I’ll give you a bloom with perfume
I’ll love you til the tropic stars disappear
And in the sky no longer shines the moon

Now he strolls in the sand in the evening
And he can smell the fragrance by the shore
And in his mind he’s believing
They’re strolling hand in hand just as before

Where the tradewinds are blowing
And the night shines with the fullness of the moon
You can see him slowly strolling
To place a bloom upon her tomb

I’ll give you a bloom with perfume, dear
I’ll give you a bloom with perfume
I’ll love you til the tropic stars disappear
And in the sky no longer shines the moon



Golden Moon (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2003) (song#2177)

 

Golden moon, high up in the skies of paradise
Golden moon, heavenly light of love is in her eyes
Oh, I know why, yes, I know why you shine with splendor
It’s because, yes, it’s because I found my island love

Sometimes dreams will succumb to life’s dark schemes
But once in a while on the isle there comes a

Golden moon, high up in the skies of paradise
Golden moon, heavenly light of love is in her eyes
Oh, I know why, yes, I know why you shine with splendor
It’s because, yes, it’s because I found my island love

Sometimes dreams will succumb to life’s dark schemes
But once in a while on the isle there comes a

Golden moon, high up in the skies of paradise
Golden moon, heavenly light of love is in her eyes
Oh, I know why, yes, I know why you shine with splendor
It’s because, yes, it’s because I found my island love



The Day After Always (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2003) (song#2178)

 

On the tradewinds tomorrow
Will be whispered your name
And on the day after always
I, too, will be doing the same

Like the tropic moon’s rays
Our love is always in sight
And on the day after always
We’ll remember each night

Your voice is a melody
Like a sweet island song
Heartstrings by the sea
Play my favorite song

Til the end of our days
Will be my love, and then
On the day after always
My same love for you begins

Your voice is a melody
Like a sweet island song
Heartstrings by the sea
Play my favorite song

Til the end of our days
Will be my love, and then
On the day after always
My same love for you begins



Year By Year (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2003) (song#2179)

 

It’s clear, the more I fall in love with you
That year by year
My love for you grows and grows
And I know it’s not just a shallow emotion
My love’s deeper, dear, than the ocean blue
And I find that year by year
Dreams in Hawaii really do come true

I’ll always want you near
And it’s so very clear
You’re my only love
A love that will be sincere
Underneath the stars above
Year by year

I’ll always want you near
And it’s so very clear
You’re my only love
A love that will be sincere
Underneath the stars above
Year by year



Twilight (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2003) (song#2180)

 

Twilight, another day is ending
The day and the night time are blending
For it’s twilight, the tropic sun is sinking
And strolling in the breeze has got me thinking

Twilight, get ready for the moonbeams
It’s the time for making sweet dreams
Strolling hand in hand in Hawaii blue
At twilight my delight is you

Twilight, get ready for the moonbeams
It’s the time for making sweet dreams
Strolling hand in hand in Hawaii blue
At twilight my delight is you



Daydream Roses (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2003) (song#2181)

 

Roses, I fell asleep among the roses
Away from the pressures life imposes
Dreaming, I was dreaming ‘mid the roses
In the tradewind breeze by the bay

Dreaming of the times I’ve been with you
In Ala Moana park and Honolulu zoo
And the time I kissed you outta the blue
And bought you some roses for your lei

Roses, I fell asleep among the roses
Dreaming of the words that my propose is
Come share a life with me among the roses
In the tradewind breeze by the bay

Dreaming of the times I’ve been with you
In Ala Moana park and Honolulu zoo
And the time I kissed you outta the blue
And bought you some roses for your lei

Roses, I fell asleep among the roses
Dreaming of the words that my propose is
Come share a life with me among the roses
In the tradewind breeze by the bay



Days Of Fish And Poi (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2003) (song#2182)

 

The days of fish and poi
Are memories that bring so much joy
In the warmth of island sand
For an island boy not yet a man
But now those days of yore on the island shore
Are behind a closing door

Those long ago days of island joy
The days of fish and poi
At the luau under tall palm trees
Of the hula dance and sweet romance
That introduced me to
The days of fish and poi and you

Those long ago days of island joy
The days of fish and poi
At the luau under tall palm trees
Of the hula dance and sweet romance
That introduced me to
The days of fish and poi and you



Sentimental Feeling (Larry W. Jones 11/05/2003) (song#2183)

Sometimes I get a sentimental feeling in the moonlight
That marvelous feeling that I want to be kissed
Strolling down the beach looking for a peach
The man in the moon is preaching from above
I’d give anything to love someone
But there’s no one there to love

Sometimes I get a yearning for a June night
That marvelous yearning that I can’t resist
Sometimes I get a sentimental feeling in the moonlight
That burning yearning that I want to be kissed
I’d give anything to love someone
But there’s no one there to love

Sometimes I get a sentimental feeling in the moonlight
That marvelous feeling that I want to be kissed
Strolling down the beach looking for a peach
The man in the moon is preaching from above
I’d give anything to love someone
But there’s no one there to love



Hawaiian Hula Way (Larry W. Jones 11/05/2003) (song#2184)

In the blue Hawaiian ocean
It’s not just palm trees that sway your emotion
There’s a lot of local motion
When girls take a notion to do the hula

They will do the hula
When there’s something they’d like to say
It’s the Hawaiian hula way
They’ll go island hopping
Hula hips swaying without stopping

Their arms can show you the moon in paradise
And that funny little reef fish swimming by
And we all know why the island boys come back
It’s not the little grass shack
It’s the little brown gal in the hula sack

They will do the hula
Just to say Aloha I love you
It’s the Hawaiian hula thing to do
Their flower leis really shine
In the sunny tropic clime

As you stroll along on the golden sands
Tell her that you’re her island man
You can do it with your hands
It’s the Hawaiian hula way
For romance



Upon This Stream (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2003) (song#2185)

Upon this stream where time moves on
Are golden sands and island songs
From times of old and days gone by
And I behold its beauty in your eyes

I found you in my dreams
Upon this stream where islands dwell
A love that proved to be supreme
And when we met my heart just fell

The stream is warm, the breeze is too
The story’s old but new and fun
Our love set sail to catch the moon
Underneath the island’s tropic sun

Upon this stream where time moves on
Are golden sands and island songs
From times of old and days gone by
And I behold its beauty in your eyes

I heard the tradewind whisper low
Here is your dream where breezes blow
Don’t let it pass, for who’s to know
When upon this stream love comes and goes

Upon this stream where time moves on
Are golden sands and island songs
From times of old and days gone by
And I behold its beauty in your eyes

Upon this stream where time moves on



My Misfortune (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2003) (song#2186)

Aloha, I love you
Aloha ‘oe, he’s in love with you too
And there is not much I can do
It’s my misfortune to fall in love with you

You ask me why
Why don’t I try
To find another love in paradise
Well, it’s my misfortune to fall in love with you

And I don’t know what to do
But I know I’ll go on loving you
For it’s my misfortune to fall in love with you

Now you say both will have to lose
For between either heart you cannot choose
Now I know why Hawaii is colored blue
For it’s my misfortune to fall in love with you

And I don’t know what to do
But I know I’ll go on loving you

Now you say both will have to lose
For between either heart you cannot choose
Now I know why Hawaii is colored blue
For it’s my misfortune to fall in love with you



Paradise (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2003) (song#2187)

Paradise
Has summoned you to me
Oh, paradise
Wants you to stroll beside me
No disguise
As the moon will rise in splendor
Tropic eyes
The stars tell you to surrender

You pulled me aside
As the moon pulls in the flooding tide
Anchored here I will abide
Harbored in your eyes of love

I could never stroll away from you
There could never be a sad goodbye
Cause you’re deep in my heart in this
Paradise

I never want to be set drifting free
For more of your love is what I need
The love in your eyes is lifting me
To paradise

Paradise
Aloha is spoken on the wind
I knew eventually
This island love would soon begin
Paradise
Has summoned you to me
Oh, paradise
Wants you to stroll beside me
No disguise
As the moon will rise in splendor
Tropic eyes
The stars tell you to surrender

I never want to be set drifting free
For more of your love is what I need
The love in your eyes is lifting me
To paradise



I Want To Return (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2003) (song#2188)

I want to return, I want to return
Oh, how I want to return

Awhile ago I burned to work on the mainland
Now I’ve learned to dream about those islands in the stream
I dream about the sunshine, fish and poi and life so fine
And I yearn for that island girl who’s love I so esteem

I want to return, I want to return
Oh, how I want to return

Island folks say I’m here to stay on the mainland
And the mail plane flies my letters home it seems
But I work that old night shift, and days fly by so swift
I wonder if they see right through my dreams

I want to return, I want to return
Oh, how I want to return

I took a fast plane east to the mainland states
And it didn’t take long to see the waste
Well, this dream is not the one I planned
Cause I’m still an island man
So I’ll return on back to where I belong
Where I yearn to see my island home

I want to return, I want to return
Oh, how I want to return



A Guy’s Best Friend (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2003) (song#2189)

She said that she loved me
She said it with such care
And I know that love’s around
I can feel it in the air
I don’t need a reminder
It’s right here for all to see
On an island in the sun
Shining so lovingly

And I know
Islands are a guy’s best friend
Where tradewinds blow
There’s a tendency for hearts to blend

It’s not about money
Not about birds and bees
Islands
Love is on the breeze

I gave her some tuberoses
She gave me the eye
Her kisses were like candy
Sent from paradise
Islands aren’t that demanding
Islands have simple tastes
There love is always spoken
It never goes to waste
Islands are a guy’s best friend



Hawaiian Setting Sun (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2003) (song#2190)

A day on the isle in the tropic sun
Watching sails on the bay and the sea
Can’t wait til the day is all done
For dreaming of you is heavenly

Hawaiian setting sun
Turns the twilight velvet blue
Turns my thoughts to only you
At hawaiian setting sun

I know your sweet love is always true
My dreams will last until the dawn
No wonder why I’m drawn
To Hawaiian setting sun

Hawaiian setting sun
Turns the twilight velvet blue
Turns my thoughts to only you
At hawaiian setting sun

I know your sweet love is always true
My dreams will last until the dawn
No wonder why I’m drawn
To Hawaiian setting sun



Heavenly Star (Larry W. Jones 11/10/2003) (song#2191)

Have you ever seen a dream a-strolling
Well, I surely have
Have you ever heard island drums a-rolling
Well, my heart surely has

Have you ever had a dream address you
With Aloha, I love you
Have you ever had two lips to press you
Into saying I love you too

Have you ever seen a dream a-coming true
Well, I surely have
Have you ever been to Hawaii blue
And seen a dream like you

Have you ever seen the heavens full of stars
Guiding you to love so true
Well, the dream that was a-strolling
The dream with lips a-pressing
The island drums a-rolling
And the heavenly star in my arms is you



Paradise Ain’t The Same (Larry W. Jones 11/10/2003) (song#2192)

Well, I missed the Friday night luau
Heard they served lots of fish and poi
Couldn’t go without you anyhow
Paradise has lost its joy

Strolled down to Duke’s canoe club
On Waikiki’s famous shore
But then my plans I scrubbed
Paradise ain’t the same anymore

Sweetheart, I hear your name whispered on the breeze
Paradise ain’t the same with just old memories

I got invited to an island dance
But I didn’t want to be a bore
Since you’re gone there’s no romance
Paradise ain’t the same anymore

Sweetheart, I hear your name whispered on the breeze
Paradise ain’t the same with just old memories

I got invited to an island dance
But I didn’t want to be a bore
Since you’re gone there’s no romance
Paradise ain’t the same anymore



It’s Enough (Larry W. Jones 11/10/2003) (song#2193)

Birds of paradise fly among the trees
And the tropic sun goes down
Been a long time since I felt the breeze
Blowin’ through old Lahaina town

Strollin’ down to the dock of the bay
Where the Lurline is anchored there
Gonna spend my mainland pay
To feel again that island air

It’s enough to make me wanna go home
Enough to make me wanna go home
All island children miss their tropic zone
It’s enough to make me wanna go home

There’s a bay at old Lahaina town
Where I spent my happy island youth
And it’s time that I settle down
From chasing dreams that were untruth

There’s a fam’ly there who still cares
And ohana love is everywhere
It’s a simple life in paradise
And it’s the answer to my prayers

It’s enough to make me wanna go home
Enough to make me wanna go home
All island children miss their tropic zone
It’s enough to make me wanna go home



Best Wish Of Them All (Larry W. Jones 11/10/2003) (song#2194)

If you ever go to Hawaii
Maui isle is fresh and free
Take the road to Lahaina town
Down by the peaceful sea
For there you’ll find a wishing well
Neath a big pandanus tree
In the tropic breeze, won’t you please
Make just one wish for me

Oh to be by the peaceful sea
Strolling with the sweetheart I once knew
A brown island maid who never fades
From my memory fresh as dew
To climb with her through the vale
To the cascading waterfall
Back to Lahaina town to see the sun go down
Is the best wish of them all

For there you’ll find a wishing well
Neath a big pandanus tree
In the tropic breeze, won’t you please
Make just one wish for me
Oh to be by the peaceful sea
Strolling with the sweetheart I once knew
A brown island maid who never fades
From my memory fresh as dew

A brown island maid who never fades
From my memory fresh as dew



Island Of Love (Larry W. Jones 11/10/2003) (song#2195)

Well I’ll be found hangin’ around
Over on the island of love
Underneath the moon in the month of June
When they start that dancin’
Hearts will be romancin’
Over on the island of love

When twilight comes a-crawlin’
True love might come a-callin’
Over on the island of love
And when the moon is shining
That’s when island love’s refining
Over on the island of love

So, if you’re strollin’ by
And you hear a sigh
Over on the island of love
Stop and stay awhile
We can dance in style
Over on the island of love

Well I’ll be found hangin’ around
Over on the island of love
Underneath the moon in the month of June
When they start that dancin’
Hearts will be romancin’
Over on the island of love

So, if you’re strollin’ by
And you hear a sigh
Over on the island of love
Stop and stay awhile
We can dance in style
Over on the island of love



Old Lahaina Town Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2003) (song#2196)

I’ve sailed upon the oceans wide
As if I had gold to spare
Sailing on the seven seas tide
I’ve been most everywhere
From Mandalay to Half Moon bay
And back a dozen times
I’m sailing back this time to stay
To that old Lahaina town of mine

Three more days to Maui
And that valley isle will be in view
Three more days to Maui
And I won’t be so blue
When I left I knew I’d be back
That’s what they told me from the start
Three more days to Maui
To that old Lahaina town of my heart

Well, there’s lots of girls everywhere
But there’s only one who’s meant for me
Mine is waiting in old Maui there
In that old Lahaina by the sea
She’s the kind that comes to mind
When you think of island sand
And in three more days she’ll find
A brand new ring upon her hand

In my mind I already see
A seaside cottage to call our own
A breezy place there by the sea
From which I’ll never roam
The only place that’ll do in Hawaii blue
Is the one where love’s as sweet as wine
Where gently flows the tradewinds too
Through that old Lahaina town of mine



For Her Sake (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2003) (song#2197)

The sun comes up at daybreak
And shines upon the bay
I wake up for her sake
What more is there to say

She’s my reason now for living
Even though she’s gone away
Memories have no forgiving
When I awake they come to stay

Oh, she was my true love
On the isle where dreams come true
She was sent from up above
Or so I thought when love was new

Whatever happened I still don’t know
And I guess I never will
But on the isle where breezes blow
I will always love her still

Tonight I’ll go to sleep again
And dream the whole night through
And wonder why my heart’s in pain
Until the day has come anew

The sun comes up at daybreak
And shines upon the bay
I wake up for her sake
What more is there to say



Beneath Southern Tropic Skies (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2003) (song#2198)

 

Where tropical tradewinds blow
And the breezes gently flow
There a polynesian maiden sighs
Beneath southern tropic skies

The full southern ocean moon
Shines upon the peaceful bay
And it calls with a lonely tune
For her lover who’s far away

Gentle waves kiss the silv’ry sand
Where they strolled hand in hand
Tears flow from polynesian eyes
Beneath southern tropic skies

Tahitian moonlight melodies
Bring back to her sweet memories
Of island love there by the sea
Island love that used to be

Oh, return to the shores of Tahiti
Beneath southern tropic skies
The isle is lonely, can’t you see
In this place called paradise

Return to where stars that shine
And steel guitars that sound divine
Speak of island love that never dies
Beneath southern tropic skies



Moonbeams On The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2003) (song#2199)

 

There are moonbeams on the ocean
Look at how they shine
Just like the deep devotion
Here in this heart of mine

She’s everything I prayed for
And even more by a country mile
That girl is my guiding star
By the shore there on the isle

I could never love another
Her love is all I need
It will brave all stormy weather
Like the shelter of the lee

There are moonbeams on the ocean
Love on the silver sea
Moved by deep emotion
When I see her love for me

She’s everything I prayed for
And even more by a country mile
That girl is my guiding star
By the shore there on the isle

There are moonbeams on the ocean
Love on the silver sea
There are moonbeams on the ocean
Beaming love from her to me



Twenty Two Hundred (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2003) (song#2200)

 

Twenty two hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Twenty two hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Twenty two hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Twenty two hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Twenty two hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Twenty two hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Twenty two hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Twenty two hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
Twenty two hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
